[via press release from The Hub]


Five-Part Miniseries Event Debuts on The Hub Television Network, Monday, November 14

LOS ANGELES - The Hub, a television network for kids and their families, will continue its fall rollout of new original programming with the five-part, live-action, miniseries event "CLUE," based on the iconic family game brand. The television miniseries, premiering Monday, November 14, marks the first time the classic family game will appear on television in a version that re-imagines the brand for young audiences and introduces the iconic game characters as young modern-day sleuths.

Produced by Hasbro Studios, "CLUE" will premiere two back-to-back, half-hour episodes Monday, November 14 (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET). Additional new episodes will premiere daily through Thursday, November 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET, culminating in a five-episode, back-to-back marathon on Saturday, November 19 (1:30 p.m. ET). Encore marathons will run throughout the Thanksgiving holiday week. For a complete schedule go to http://www.Hubworld.com

The world's most famous crime-solving game CLUE comes to television for the first time in the United States featuring the iconic characters, weapons, and locations from the classic family game. The new live-action, five-part miniseries event follows six young sleuths who stumble upon an adventure they never imagined after witnessing a terrible crime. Along the way, the six very different kids discover they have a lot more in common than they thought as they uncover hidden treasures and decipher cryptic knowledge to reveal a secret society. The mystery they unravel, and the accusations they make, could very well define their own futures.

Executive Produced by Raven Metzner (ABC's "Six Degrees"), the cast is comprised of top young talent including Sterling Beaumon (Mostly Ghostly, ABC's "Lost"), Zach Mills (Super 8, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium), Stephan James (12 Dates of Christmas), Sarah Dejardins (Magic Beyond Words), Kendall Amyre Ferguson (BET's "Black Girls Rock") and Ana Golja (Family Channel's "What's Up Warthogs").

"CLUE" will be supported by extensive marketing initiatives including The Hub's "Get A CLUE" sweepstakes during which viewers watching live can win prize packages representing each of the six popular characters from the game. During each new episode of the five-part mini-series as well as the encore marathon on Saturday, November 19, Hub viewers will have the chance to call in and win one of six character-themed prize packages. More details, including a description of prizes, can be found at http://www.Hubworld.com beginning on Monday, November 7.

Additionally, the network's website http://www.Hubworld.com will host a variety of interactive and engaging "CLUE" themed activities in the weeks leading up to and during the premiere of the miniseries event. Starting in November, visitors will be able to decipher clues to earn virtual rewards, unlock an interactive map, take quizzes and polls, get caught up on episodes they may have missed, and much more. Facebook and Twitter (@HubTVNetwork) followers will also be able to extend viewers' experience online by participating in special mini-mysteries after each episode is televised.
