Tune In! ‘The 212’ Docu-Series Premiere on Fuse
The 212 is a brand new docu-series, premiering tonight Tuesday, October 16th at 11:30p.m. ET/PT on Fuse and Fuse On Demand, following five up-and-coming New York City based culture-creators – musician/DJ Odalys, musician , model/designer , model/designer , and model – as they grind, succeed, fail and step up to do it all again.
Reality shouldn’t be pretty. It’s raw, relentless and unscripted. And that’s just how these self-made artists and entrepreneurs like it. Odalys, PosterBoy, Milk, K$ACE and Dallas are living their best life. A life created daily by their tenacity and hyper-confident swagger. Achieving icon status takes more than raw talent. The ability to deal with sacrifice, self-doubt, frustration and failure is just as important as success in their come up. Being followed by legit A-list talent also helps. The 212 is a cast of doers whose paths collide as they chase their individual dreams.
Ahead of the series premiere, The Hype Magazine spent some time with this amazing cast to get their thoughts on how perseverance, unwavering idealism, and pure intestinal fortitude can bring a mere thought to fruition on the major stage. This group of young friends, all have amazing individual stories but it is their movement as a collective which makes such a perfect showcase of real-life struggle and triumph.
In respect for their totally unscripted reality series, we decided to keep and present the live interviews just as they were recorded. Since life isn’t full of edits and do-overs, it just seemed the right thing to do in this case. It’s a celebration of true-life in all its glory…including the bloopers!!!
