ABCd Sept Sizzle:

Series details include:

What To Text Him Back

Relationship expert and New York Times best-selling author of "Get The Guy," Matthew Hussey breaks down dating in the digital age. From inappropriate sexts or just the simple, yet often confounding ones like, "hey," viewers will never be lost in "textlation" again. #WhatToTextHimBack

This Isn't Working

Sarah Turner (Lisa Schwartz) is an aspiring actress with a negative bank account balance, taking on an endless stream of embarrassing part-time jobs to make ends meet. Along with her roommates (the uptight and straight-laced Nicole and the free-spirited hippie Jake), Sarah represents a new generation overwhelmed with the trials of adult life but underwhelmed with the idea of working a 9-to-5. Actress, comedian and YouTube star Lisa Schwartz, known online as Lisbug, co-produced and wrote the series with Sean Kearney. The series is also executive produced by Schwartz and Kearney, along with Maker Studios, and Chris Hanada and Tanner Kling of Retrofit. #ThisIsntWorkingShow

Tastemade's Farm to Plate

Aussie chef Guy Turland explores the foraging phenomenon, trekking through land and sea to pick the freshest local ingredients from the most interesting places. Guided by people who truly understand the ingredients and prepared in the great outdoors, Turland discovers what it truly means to eat well and be happy. #FarmToPlate

On the Record

This month, "On the Record" features Muslim RnB songbird Yuna. From being an aspiring law student in Malaysia to singing part time with local bands to now collaborating with RnB superstar Usher on her latest single "Crush," Yuna shares how she found her voice while balancing the Muslim traditions she holds sacred. #OnTheRecord

She Talks

What does it take to find success? Be smart, work hard and - above all - be FEARLESS. Real-life women entrepreneurs Alli Webb, founder of DryBar; Wendi Levy and Kim Etheridge, co-founders of Mixed Chicks; Chelsea Shukov and Jamie Grobecker, co-founders of Sugar Paper; and Zhena Muzyka, founder of Zhena's Gypsy Tea, share the sacrifices and triumphs of striking out on their own. #SheTalks

On September 15, "A Little of Your Time with Quinn Marcus" will go live in conjunction with Marcus' role as the official social media correspondent for the 2016 Emmys. Marcus is best known from MTV's "Girl Code" and MTVu's "Quinnterviews."

In "A Little of Your Time with Quinn Marcus," interviewees are asked to share some aspect of their everyday lives with Marcus. Unassuming and always just a little awkward, Marcus balances the fine line between being intimate and being totally invasive. #ALittleOfYourTime
