Youth-focused company Fuse has started production on two upcoming series from media content company Alkemy X and Los Angeles based prodco Citizen Jones.

The Alkemy X-produced The 212 will follow a group of New York City kids who are redefining the future of youth culture. The docuseries will provide a candid look at the group as their burgeoning music and modeling careers begin to take off all while navigating their friendships, family, love and business.

Featured Gen Z youth in The 212 are model Dallas; musician and model K$ace; model and producer Liam Daniels; model and designer Milk; DJ and model Odalys Pena (pictured); and model and designer Posterboy.

Executive producers on the series include Justin B. Wineburgh, Andy Singer, Eddie M. Williams, Jamie Schenk and Mark Perez.

Elsewhere, Citizen Jones has linked with musician T-Pain on the comedic adventure series Side Gig With T-Pain (working title). The 6 x 30-minute series will feature the rapper-producer on his quest to find the perfect side gig to spark his entrepreneurial dominance by exploring the most unexpected, inspiring and unique businesses championed by upstart millennials and members of Generation Z.

From socially-conscious start-ups and weed operations, to airborne autonomous drone taxis, T-Pain looks at the innovators and the secret behind their hustle.

Side Gig will premiere on Fuse in October 2018 and is executive produced by Jonas Bell Pasht, Jonah Bekhor, Rebecca Hertz and T-Pain.
