Fuse Greenlights Like, Share, Dimelo -- Bringing Digital Original to TV, with Series Premiere Set for September 21
LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK - JULY 9, 2020 - Fuse Media, a cross-platform entertainment media brand serving a multicultural Millennial and Gen Z audience, is bringing digital original Like, Share, Dimelo to its flagship linear channel.
Premiering September 21 on Fuse, Like, Share, Dimelo is a hilarious and unfiltered talk series hosted by Latina comedians, Dee Nasty (Darlene Demorizi) and Sasha Merci, who explore trending topics in Latinx and millennial issues, include politics, pop culture, dating and sex. In Like, Share, Dimelo - which originally launched in April 2020 as a short-form digital series - the duo has looked to answer questions such as the meaning of Latinx, cultural appropriation in plastic surgery, and the mind-bending simulation theory of this thing called life.
"We are beyond grateful to have this platform on Fuse as a space to express ourselves as two Dominicanas from the Bronx. Whether it be roasting the latest pop-culture scandal or educating ourselves on more serious topics in the Latin community and today's political climate, we hope to impact our viewers and be a part of the representation that is desperately needed on our TVs," said Dee and Sasha. "We are ecstatic to make the jump from digital to cable this fall and we only have one word for people expecting us: 'preparense' 😉."
The newest digital episode of Like, Share, Dimelo now available on Fuse.tv, YouTube and other digital platforms, features special celebrity guest, Amara La Negra. In it, she discusses her work as an activist, the Black Lives Matter movement and why she feels the world as a whole has to continue to fight inequality and overall racism which continues to plague our society.
"Sasha and Dee are extraordinary talents, super funny, and not afraid to take risks while tackling a wide spectrum of subjects, and we are proud to further invest in them, and add their voices to Fuse's fall primetime lineup," said Jon Scarlett, head of the company's Fuse Content Studio, which produces the show. "We have seen what they can do with 15 minute digital episodes, and can't wait to see what they come up with next."
