London- and New York-based prodco Nerd TV is working with U.S. net Fusion on a digital-turned-linear series titled Selfies.

Jago Lee, MD of Nerd TV, tells realscreen that Fusion has ordered 10 episodes of the company’s series Selfies, in which participants film themselves and provide commentary on their lives. The concept was originally created for Channel 4′s online platform as a series of 10 to 15-minute shorts following four young Brits (pictured).

“It’s a good example of something having a really nice afterlife after developing as an idea,” said Lee.

The exec added that the U.S. series – which is currently in production – will also focus on youth, and provide its stars with equipment and training to document their lives over a two-week period. An air date is yet to be announced.

As previously reported, the producer’s series Find My First Love - in which couples try to rekindle old flames – aired on U.S. net FYI last month. Most recently, both National Geographic Channels International and Channel 4 ordered Nerd TV’s six-episode daredevil stunt series True Tube (working title).
