The African-American online news site was acquired by Univision in May.
Fusion and The Root will develop and co-produce television programming tailored for a young and diverse audience.
The Root will make its debut the Univision/ABC-owned cable net in 2016.
Fusion, which according to Univision’s IPO filing, has been operating at a multi-million dollar loss, has eliminated most of its original programming from its lineup.
Last month, Fusion axed two shows – “Come Here and Say That,” hosted by Alicia Menéndez and “Soccer Gods.”
