Children‘s cablenet The Hub is building its programming schedule with the help of established entertainment brands and faces. The network’s new 2013-’14 season will include four new shows, two of which are live-action series Spooksville and Wizards vs Aliens, as well as two original movies and nine returning series.
Two new live-action series are set to debut on the network including the new original series Spooksville, which is based on the tween book series from Christopher Pike. The half-hour series is produced by Front Street Pictures and Springville Productions in association with Jane Startz Productions.
Additionally, the UK adventure-fantasy series Wizards vs Aliens, from BBC and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment and executive producer Russell T Davies (Doctor Who), will make its US debut this summer on the network.
The two new animated series include Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch, starring Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical), and the acquired series SheZow, from Moody Street Kids & Kickstart Productions, which features a thrill-seeking dude trying to cultivate a macho image who inherits the superhero persona of his deceased aunt.
In addition, The Hub will have two animated original movies, including Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising and the early 2014 Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, starring the superhero creator himself. Mighty 7, which is produced by A2 Entertainment, Archie Comic Publications and Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment, will serve as a springboard for a potential future television series.
Returning series/specials to the network include season two of The Aquabats! Super Show!, season three of Pound Puppies, season two of Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, season four of Family Game Night, a fourth season of R.L.
