The Hub Presents Five-Day Original Mini-Series Event Showcasing 'Transformers: Prime'

-- Week to Also Include: "Hub Exclusive: 'Transformers: Prime'" And Transformers-Themed "Hubworld" Episode --

October 28, 2010

(Los Angeles, Ca.) Fans of the enormously popular Transformers action-adventure entertainment franchise will revel in the upcoming television event on The Hub cable network - a five-part original mini-series, Monday-Friday, November 29 - December 3, showcasing "Transformers: Prime," a new CGI-animated television series coming to the network. The Hub, a TV network for kids and their families, is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc., and is available to 60 million U.S. cable and satellite households.

"Transformers: Prime" is produced for The Hub by Hasbro Studios. Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and Jeff Kline are executive producers. Kurtzman and Orci served as executive producers of the feature films "Transformers," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Star Trek." Kline was also executive producer of the animated series "Jackie Chan Adventures."

Prior to the five-day mini-series event, The Hub will spotlight "Transformers: Prime" with a Thanksgiving holiday weekend sneak preview of the mini-series and an action-packed lineup of "Transformers: Prime"-related programming that begins Friday, November 26. Kicking off the Transformers schedule is a special episode of the original series "Hubworld," a weekly, half-hour, pop culture magazine that will be dedicated to the Transformers phenomenon, Friday, November 26 (3 p.m. ET).

"Hubworld"'s special "Transformers: Prime" episode will be followed by a half-hour behind-the-special, "Hub Exclusive: "Transformers: Prime'" (3:30 p.m. ET), which culminates with the premiere of the first two half-hour episodes (at 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET) of the "Transformers: Prime" mini-series, in which arch rivals the Autobots and Decepticons once again face-off in their epic rivalry for control of Earth. The all-new mini-series will feature iconic characters of the franchise, including Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and the ominous Decepticon Megatron, as well as introducing new human characters to the action series.

Following the "Transformers: Prime" Friday lineup of programming, The Hub will showcase the highly anticipated new series with the five-day mini-series event, Monday-Friday, November 29-December 3 (6:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. ET). The week-long run will include three additional new episodes of "Transformers Prime" on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, December 1-3.
