Discovery Family is preparing to premiere a new animated Transformers series, produced by Hasbro’s Allspark Animation in January. Transformers: Rescue Bot Academy will kick off with two back-to-back episodes airing December 29 on Discovery Family GO, before its linear debut on January 5.

Exec produced by Hasbro Studios’ Stephen Davis, the 52 x 11-minute preschool series traces the adventures of the robots in disguise at a school run by Heatwave the Fire-Bot, Chase the Police-Bot, Blades the Copter-Bot and Boulder the Construction-Bot.

Allspark also co-produces Transformers: Cyberverse with Boulder Media, and Cartoon Network just picked up season one of the CGI action-adventure series to air before the end of this year both on linear and digital in EMEA and LatAm.
