Fuse Media is getting in the DJ booth with Believe Entertainment and Tiësto. The partnership will see digital-focused Believe produce the first made-for-TV season of Tiësto’s In the Booth, a docu-style series featuring the world-famous DJ-producer.

Tiësto’s In the Booth will premiere two new episodes back to back on Oct. 17 on FM, Fuse Media’s new network celebrating music culture. It will also be simulcast on sister network Fuse. Following the premiere, new episodes will be available every Monday exclusively on FM.

Previously, Tiësto’s In the Booth had a successful three-year, three-season run as a digital series on YouTube before it was picked up for television by Fuse Media. The new season on FM will include ten 15-minute, all-new original episodes.

The sale to Fuse makes it the first series in the dance music genre to make the leap from a digital platform to a cable network. The digital series was also the first major DJ documentary series to debut online, via YouTube, according to Believe. And, as part of the launch of the digital series, Tiësto performed the very first live-stream concert on Twitter.

Believe Entertainment Group co-founders William H. Masterson III and Dan Goodman are co-executive producing the series, along with Tiësto. Prior to the partnership with Fuse Media, Believe had been responsible for financing, producing, selling and distributing the series.
