Youth entertainment company Fuse Media set premiere dates for its fall slate today (Aug. 14), unveiling a new film under its Fuse Docs franchise and expanding series to its linear network.

The lineup boasts five new programs alongside the return of unscripted series Complex x Fuse for a fifth season.

A new installment to the Peabody and Emmy award-winning Fuse Docs series The Candidates follows a diverse New York City high school staging a mock election in 2016 modeled after the U.S. electoral process. Directed by Alexandra Stergiou and Lexi Henigman, the documentary premieres Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Max Power’s previously announced documentary Don’t Be Nice, about young poets competing in the National Poetry Slam, is slated to premiere Oct. 11 at 11:30 p.m.

Fuse will debut the previously announced celebrity cooking series Made from Scratch Oct. 15 at 11 p.m. and talk/variety show The Read with Kid Fury and Crissle West Oct. 11 at 11 p.m.

The company is also releasing a linear episode of its digital docuseries Soundcheck to Stage Sept. 2 at 11 p.m., in which viewers go backstage with rapper Rich The Kid before a concert.

“By migrating nontraditional programming to Fuse’s linear channel, we have blurred the line between ‘digital’ and ‘TV’ programming to create a diverse fall lineup,” said Fuse Media chief content officer J-T Ladt, in a statement.
