Default The Hub 2012 Upfront - Facts of Life, Mork & Mindy, Sabrina Coming

More info to come on the blog with complete details.

Scott Wolf, Freddy Rodriguez, John DiMaggio and Phil LaMarr Featured In New Animated Series "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters" Premiering This Summer

Other New Original Series Include Animated "Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot" and "Littlest Pet Shop," as well as Live-Action Series "Spooksville" Based on Popular Kids' Book Series from Christopher Pike


LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2012 -- Programs based on iconic names and strong, beloved properties are among the four new original series that will join eight returning popular original series on The Hub TV Network's 2012-2013 programming lineup. The announcement was made today by Margaret Loesch, President and CEO of The Hub, a TV network for kids and their families. The new series continue the network's strategy of building a schedule with programs based on well-known brands. The Hub launched October 10, 2010, replacing the former Discovery Kids Network.

Among the new original series coming to The Hub are the animated series "Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot," "Littlest Pet Shop," "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters" and the new live-action series "Spooksville" based on the popular tween book series from Christopher Pike.

In addition, The Hub announced the acquisition of the popular live-action series "The Facts of Life," "Mork & Mindy" and "Sabrina The Teenage Witch."

The program announcements were made in advance of The Hub's advertising upfront events in New York (March 1), Chicago (March 8) and Los Angeles (March 15).

"With the momentum of our successful first year, we're building a slate of programs for the 2012-'13 season that continues our strategy of presenting series based on well-known names and beloved properties in the kids and family entertainment space," said Ms. Loesch. "One of our advantages has always been the built-in strength and recognition of our programming. The success of that is evident in our large number of returning original series and in the exciting new original series. We're confident that this lineup will further define us as the entertainment destination for kids and their families."

The first of the new series to appear on The Hub will be "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters" an all-new, action-packed animated series from Hasbro Studios premiering this summer. The series features the voices of popular actors Scott Wolf ("Party of Five"), Freddy Rodriguez ("Ugly Betty"), John DiMaggio ("Futurama" and "Pound Puppies") and Phil LaMarr ("Mad TV"). "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters" is an animated action-fantasy series that follows the adventures of a young hero, Ray, who possesses the rare ability to befriend and duel alongside fantastical creatures from a parallel dimension. The series is based on a re-imagination of the wildly successful Duel Masters property in Japan by Wizards of the Coast (Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons) and Hasbro, Inc.


The programs expected to debut on The Hub in 2012-2013 are as follows:

I really don't like the acquisition of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (assuming they're putting it with the other older sitcoms; if it's for daytime/early evening fine but it shouldn't be taking a slot away from a more classic sitcom).

I'm interested to see what their classic lineup will look like now.
I think Mork & Mindy fits well with Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley so good pickup there but Facts of Life, I know many of you here are big fans, but I just don't think it fits well with the other shows they have. Also, if they're capable of picking up Facts of Life, I would have suggested getting Diff'rent Strokes instead since I think it has more broad appeal since Facts of Life all the main characters are female and the quality of both shows is relatively even.

If they take off Wonder Years I will boycott the channel haha

Brady Bunch would really be a good fit on this channel, though. Or even Partridge Family. Growing Pains would also be a nice pickup.

Brady Bunch is on INSP and MeTV. Partridge Family is on Antenna TV. And if they have Laverne & Shirley, why wouldn't Facts of Life fit? Both are female-led shows.

These three new shows are no where right now.

Yes! It's about time The Facts of Life started airing again. It only sucks I don't have cable though Hopefully I'll get to see it somewhere. I have Seasons 1-5 on DVD. But I'd love to see the later ones.

Nick @ Nite isnt even close for me, METV, Antenna TV, The Hub, even Hallmark are much better then Nick @ Nite for Classic Tv. But to each is own.

I Love the additions especially Facts Of Life and Mork and Mindy.

I'll have to check-out The Hub sometime, I also hope someday they can play "He-Man" or "Garfield" on The Hub.
