Throughout this financial reorganization, Fuse Media has continued to grow its business. This includes premiering Fuse’s first adult animated original series, Sugar and Toys; starting production on Made From Scratch, an original new series initially developed as a short-form digital series that will premiere on the linear Fuse channel this fall; acquiring the rights to new installments of the Fuse Docs and Fuse Films franchises; and solidifying distribution of its linear and video-on-demand channels via renewals and new partnerships - including recently reaffirming its partnership with AT&T and DIRECTV, and entering into new distribution agreements.
Said Fuse Media interim CEO Miguel (“Mike”) Roggero, “I would first like to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication during this challenging period. We are also thankful for the unwavering financial support of our bondholders. Looking forward, Fuse will continue to provide content that entertains and inspires young and underserved Latino and multicultural audiences, and to collaborate with creative, brand and distribution partners who share this goal.”
According to Mr. Roggero, now that Fuse Media has strengthened its balance sheet, among the company’s goals is to continue to accelerate its investment in original programming, resulting in a 100% increase in original content on the Fuse schedule in 2020 vs. 2019, to both serve its existing audience and to continue to evolve the Fuse brand in a way that will attract and engage new viewers.
