Distributor DCD Rights is set to shop music programming from U.S. music network Fuse internationally, with Warped Roadies (pictured) being the first program out of the deal.
Warped Roadies, a 10 x 30-minute series, follows the crew keeping the Vans Warped Tour rolling as the show travels across the U.S. The series will document the 51 days of traveling involved, with the roadies setting up 41 shows for over 250 bands.
“This is a unique show where the most unconventional characters achieve the most astounding levels of organization and skill to keep the Warped Tour safely on the road,” said Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of DCD Rights. “It heralds a new collaboration with the Fuse network whose original productions meet the broad tastes of today’s 18-34 year old audiences, and further boosts our catalog with shows from a fresh angle. ”
“Our newly established relationship with DCD Rights, a company that represents a wide breadth of music programming, comes at a particularly opportune time as Fuse continues to increase its output of original scripted and unscripted shows,” added Peter Tulloch, VP of MSG Media, owner of Fuse.
