New York, NY (June 22, 2010) - Fuse, Madison Square Garden's national music television network, today announced "A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus," a long-form original series scheduled to premiere in September. Hosted by musician (Blink 182 and +44) and producer Mark Hoppus, this one-hour, innovative weekly show will cover everything in the world of music.

Every week, Hoppus and his co-host will offer a place for music fans to discover and indulge their passions through interviews with artists and celebrities and musical performances by mainstream and emerging bands. "A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus" will also feature music news, fun panel discussions and special reports from the show's correspondents, offering a humorous and entertaining spin on the music industry, including concert tours, festival and other music-related happenings. Additional information about the show, co-host and correspondents will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

"I am stoked to join the Fuse family and have a show where I can talk about a topic that I'm passionate about, music," said Hoppus. "More importantly, I'm excited to force millions of people to watch me on a weekly basis on national television."

Hoppus made his claim to fame as one third of the infamous trio that makes up multi-platinum selling punk band Blink 182. Today, aside from being the band's frontman and bassist, Hoppus has branched into the world of producing working with bands such as New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack and All Time Low to name a few. He also continues to work on his own music projects both alone and with his Blink 182 bandmates.

"Mark's talent and keen understanding of music will help make �A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus' unlike any other music show on television," said Sal LoCurto, senior vice president of programming and development, Fuse. "The show is a perfect vehicle for Mark's personality as it will be steeped in music, always entertaining, intimate and funny. �A Different Spin with Mark Hoppus' was developed to compliment the wide variety of music programming on Fuse - including live concerts, festival coverage and in-depth interview series with the biggest names in music."
