Netflix greenlights unscripted series The Fix, Westside & Sugar Rush

Building up its unscripted slate, Netflix has ordered three new unscripted series: The Fix, Westside, and Sugar Rush, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed. The three series join an ever-growing list of reality programming at the streamer, joining breakouts including Chef’s Table, Ultimate Beastmaster, Making a Murderer and newer shows like Queer Eye, Dope, Drug Lords, Nailed It!, and The Toys That Made Us.

The Fix is described as the first comedy show in the word with the stated ambition to solve the world’s biggest problems. In each installment of the 10-episode series, Jimmy Carr, along with two permanent team captains Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley, will host guest comics and experts who will take one massive issue facing the world and attempt to solve it. The series is produced by Embassy Row, with Michael Davies and Andrew Westwell executive producing.

Westside follows a group of ambitious and deeply talented young musicians spanning multiple genres, coming together to create an original performance series at a Los Angeles nightclub. Following the artists in their complicated lives as they pursue their dreams to make it in the music business, the eight-episode series weaves gritty and cinematic docuseries scenes with artistic music videos featuring original songs that underscore the storylines of the series. James Carroll will direct with Kevin Bartel, Richard McKerrow, Michael Flutie, Sun DeGraff, and Lara Spotts executive producing. Westside comes from Love Productions and Madwood Studios.

Sugar Rush is described as a new relentlessly fact-paced baking competition that challenges brilliant bakers to create sweet treats that look beautiful and taste amazing — all against the clock. The eight-episode competition series is judged by two world-class pastry chefs: Candance Nelson (co-founder and executive pastry chef behind Sprinkles cupcakes and Pizzana in Los Angeles) and Adriano Zumbo, with Hunter March hosting. Magical Elves is producing, with Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Doneen Arquines, Casey Kriley, Candace Nelson, and Andrew Wallace set to executive produce.
