PBS offers an intimate look at the magical world of circus performers and their stories with a new six-part docu-series titled Circus, premiering November 3 at 9p (check local PBS affiliate listings). Produced by Show of Force, the same company behind the PBS series Carrier, this series goes inside the Big Apple Circus company following the owners and performers inside the big top and out. The series gives viewers a never-before-seen look at how a traveling big-top show operates. Circus will additionally have an interactive website and social media component to further examine what it is like to be a circus performer and offer consumers history about the circus in America.

Centric and SMIRNOFF introduce viewers to a cadre of popular DJs in the new original competition series Master of the Mix, set to debut November 3 at 1030p. Hosted by producer Just Blaze, the show pits well-known DJs against each other with one winning $250,000 in cash and prizes, including a custom-made SMIRNOFF bottle. DJ Kid Capri will oversee the judges' booth and hip-hop artist Biz Markie will make several guest appearances to work with the DJs throughout the season. The series is created by SMIRNOFF and produced by GTM. Ben Silverman serves as executive producer with his newly-established production company, Electus. BET/Centric also are executive producers.
