MTV2 and HOT 97 TV Come Together to Bring the New Reality Series 'THE WIZARDS of NYC' Based on the Life and Times of the NYC DJ

THE WIZARDS of NYC is a new series that explores the life and careers of three New York City DJs...representing three boroughs and one dream -- to make it in one of the biggest cities in the world, NEW YORK CITY, a.k.a. "EMERALD CITY."

DJ Camilo, DJ Cipha Sounds and DJ Enuff are THE WIZARDS of NYC.

The new series chronicles their lives and struggles while on their journey to succeed.

THE WIZARDS symbolically parallels the journey of the characters in the story of "The Wizard of Oz," proving it takes heart, courage and brains to make it in this business. "This show lets everyone see that DJs are regular people...they get to see the side of them they normally can't see -- the work that goes into it, the health issues, the personal issues," says HOT 97 Program Director Ebro Darden.

From chasing down your cash, to sleepless nights and nightclub brawls, to missing your flight to your next gig...the life of a DJ is pretty wicked.


Most DJs spend their entire life in the shadows. No matter how well they control the crowd or dazzle on the decks, they remain anonymous heroes lost in the darkness of the booth. Through different perspectives -- the promoters, the wife, the girlfriend, the kids -- we will explore the TRUE world they live in. In our world the DJ's are the true "Wizards", they're behind the booth controlling the crowd with the magic of the music. They set the rules and tone of the night through the power of their hands. A world that seems to be filled with the glitz, the glamour and the GRIND...where anything can happen. Even for famous DJ's, all that glitters isn't gold. Watch the journey unfold in THE WIZARDS of NYC -- DJ CAMILO, DJ CIPHA SOUNDS and DJ ENUFF, all hailing from the infamous hip hop radio station, HOT 97.1 FM in New York City. In addition to THE WIZARDS of NYC series, we spotlight the chaotic life of DJ's from LA, ATL and MIA. Their personal lives and struggles may be different, but their hustle remains the same -- TO MAKE IT IN THIS BUSINESS.
