Global streamer Netflix has added three series to its unscripted slate from Magical Elves, Love Productions and Embassy Row.

Magical Elves is bringing the eight-episode baking competition, Sugar Rush, to the platform. Featuring top pastry chefs Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo and hosted by Hunter March, the series pits bakers against each other to create sweet confections while beating the clock.

Executive producers are Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Doneen Arquines, Casey Kriley, Candace Nelson, and Andrew Wallace.

Love Productions and Madwood Studios will produce the eight-episode Westside. The series follows a group of young musicians spanning multiple genres as they team up to create an original performance series at a Los Angeles nightclub. The format interlaces gritty docuseries content with artistic music video sequences featuring original compositions that underscore the themes of the series.

Exec producers are Kevin Bartel, Richard McKerrow, Michael Flutie, Sun DeGraff, and Lara Spotts.

Embassy Row’s The Fix, meanwhile, teams comedians and experts to take a crack at solving the world’s problems, with a healthy dose of humor. Jimmy Carr, along with team captains Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley, will bring together comics and assorted experts to tackle the world’s issues through comedy.

Executive producers for the 10-episode series are Michael Davies and Andrew Westwell.

Premiere dates for the series have not been announced.
