Fuse has three new shows

Fuse logoFuse has green-lit production for three new shows. Redemption Song, Tour Me a New One, and Rock Bottom -- all working titles -- will air this fall.

Matt Faber, executive VP of Programming and Development explains the decision to move forward with these shows: "The addition of these shows furthers our commitment to new programming that has music at its pulse. With each new series, we're building on the depth and variety of music programming that viewers can find on Fuse." So Fuse is trying to pick up where MTV left off by centering their programming around music, its production, and its artists. But do these three shows do that?

Here's what the new shows are about:

Redemption Song: This show will feature ten female contestants who are struggling to get by and maybe haven't made the best career choices in the past. The competition will come with all the mandatory ridiculous challenges. The prize? A major record deal.

Tour Me a New One: The series will follow comedian Nate Jackson as he travels the globe looking for the most intriguing music fans. I don't get the title for this one.

Rock Bottom: This show will allow a different musical group as they confront a member who is having trouble with drug addiction, alcoholism or another personal vice. Sounds a little bit like Celebrity Rehab. I wonder what bands they'll be able to get.

I don't know if the programming matches Faber's assessments of his network. While these shows are based on music, they certainly follow the classic reality show formula. What do you think?

For Rock Bottom, I think they are shooting Paperback Hero, they said something about this on their MySpace blog.
