MTV'S "CATFISH: TROLLS" TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, JULY 18TH AT 10PM ET/PT

New York, NY - July 2, 2018 - MTV's "Catfish: Trolls" will premiere on Wednesday, July 18th at 10PM ET/PT. The three-week event will explore one of the most pervasive and consistent issues online: internet trolling. Using the "Catfish" brand of investigating the truth, host and executive producer Charlamagne Tha God, and his co-host, social media entrepreneur Raymond Braun, will confront the issue head-on and bring subjects face-to-face with their aggressors for the first time.

"Catfish: Trolls" comes at a time when online trolling is on the rise and continues to be an issue confronting young people. Trolls dominate social feeds and drum up viral storms. Throughout the episodes, viewers will meet Cameron, who's long awaited confrontation with his aggressor becomes explosive; Ciera, who's life completely changed when someone stole her selfies and created an offensive meme that went viral; and Meike, who has been trolled by someone for six years. Tempers will flare as Charlamagne and Raymond bring these subjects together to provide an open forum and help them find closure.

"Catfish: Trolls" is executive produced by Tom Forman, David Metzler and Kendra Macleod for Critical Content; Andrew Jarecki, Marc Smerling, Ariel Schulman, and Henry Joost for Catfish Picture Company; and Nev Schulman, Max Joseph, Brandon Gross and Lenard "CThaGod" Mckelvey. Tiffany Williams and Benjamin Hurvitz are executive producers for MTV.

Born and raised in Moncks Corner in South Carolina, Charlamagne quickly rose to become one of today's most unique and compelling media personalities.
