"World Star TV" and "ADD-TV" Launch on February 3

"Uncommon Sense Live" Set to Premiere on February 24

NEW YORK, NY (Tuesday, January 10) - MTV2 today announced the debut of two new series, "World Star TV" - the first TV show from the famed World Star Hip Hop; the sketch comedy show "ADD-TV" from the media powerhouse co-founded by legendary media mogul Russell Simmons; and the third season of "Uncommon Sense" hosted by Charlamagne Tha God which will now air live from MTV's headquarters in New York City.

"These new shows from two of the noisiest and most relevant digital brands speak to the same young, diverse audience as MTV2, and working to bring their voices to TV is a natural fit," said Eli Lehrer, Head of Development for MTV and Executive Vice President of MTV2. "A new live version of 'Uncommon Sense' is an exciting reinvention of the show that will allow Charlamagne to showcase his unique skill-set and tremendous hosting talent."

"World Star TV," a 10-episode weekly series set to debut on February 3 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT, will be hosted by Chris Powell, known as Comedian CP who has been featured in All Def Digital's recent HBO standup comedy special "All Def Comedy" and Fox's "Empire." Chris will hold court in the World Star VIP Lounge and be joined by a panel of comedians, correspondents and cultural tastemakers who will offer hilarious commentary on the funniest clips from the wildly popular digital destination, World Star Hip Hop. The series will also include original sketches and man-on-the-street segments, along with celebrity guests from a pool of today's hottest names in rap.

"ADD-TV," the three-episode half-hour special series will air immediately following "World Star TV" at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT and will bring the best of All Def Digital's content to a linear platform. Each episode will feature top emerging comedians, social media influencers and All Def Digital's in-house talent and staff in various segments and sketches that address cultural, racial and gender stereotypes, or situations that are just plain funny, through ADD's unique brand of comedy.

"Uncommon Sense Live" will premiere live on February 24 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT following an all-new episode of "World Star TV." Heading into its third season, MTV2 is reinventing the Charlamagne Tha God-hosted series as a live weekly destination to make "uncommon sense" out of the news stories striking a chord with today's younger generation. Viewers will also have the opportunity to call or Skype in as Charlamagne and guests have in-depth, open and real conversations exploring all sides of an issue.

"World Star TV" is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with World Star Hip Hop and Five All in the Fifth Productions. David Eilenberg, David George, Jessica Sebastian-Dayeh, Brian Zagorski, Lee "Q" O'Denat, Doug Banker and Rob Anderson serve as Executive Producers.

"ADD-TV" is produced by All Def Digital. Russell Simmons, Chris Conti and Harris Sherman serve as Executive Producers.

"Uncommon Sense Live" is executive produced for MTV2 by Charlamagne Tha God, Annie Gillies, Brian Saracusa and Darin Byrne.
