THE HUB NETWORK UNVEILS 2013-'14 PROGRAM SLATE WITH SIX NEW ADDITIONS TO JOIN NINE RETURNING ORIGINAL SERIES

Ashley Tisdale, Russell T Davies, Stan Lee and Christopher Pike Make Their Debut on The Hub

Upcoming Hub Original Family Movies Include An Epilogue for "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters" And Stan Lee's New Band of Superheroes Voiced by An All-Star Cast

LOS ANGELES - The Hub Network today announced a slate of new programming for the 2013-'14 television season that includes four new series, two Hub Original Family Movies, and nine returning series. Set to debut starting this summer, the lineup continues the network's strategy of building a schedule with programs based on well-known brands featuring popular and respected names in the entertainment space. The announcement was made today by Margaret Loesch, President and CEO of The Hub, the fastest growing children's cable network.

"The Hub is in a tremendous growth stage with triple-digit ratings increases, a major bump in distribution, and quality programming that appeals to both children and their parents," said Ms. Loesch. "This slate of new and returning programs will capitalize on and sustain that momentum as we head into next season and continue to exponentially grow our presence in the kids space."

Two new live-action series are set to debut on the network including the new Hub Original Series "Spooksville" which is based on the popular tween book series from Christopher Pike. Additionally, the popular U.K. adventure-fantasy series "Wizards vs Aliens" from Executive Producer Russell T Davies ("Doctor. Who," "Torchwood") will make its U.S. debut this summer on The Hub.

The new programming lineup will also include two animated series: the new Hub Original Series, "Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch," starring Ashley Tisdale ("High School Musical") as the iconic teen character re-imagined for a new generation; and an acquired series called "SheZow," which features 12-year-old Guy, a thrill-seeking dude trying to cultivate a macho image who inherits the superhero persona of his deceased aunt - the kick-butt, FEMALE superhero SheZow!

In addition, The Hub will have two animated Hub Original Family Movies, including "Stan Lee's Mighty 7," starring the legendary superhero creator himself, as well as an all-star lineup of voice actors; and "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising," which wraps up the series' final chapter revealing the fate of Cybertron.

A comprehensive list of The Hub's 2013-'14 programming slate is as follows:

Summer 2013

"Wizards vs Aliens" (Hub Acquired Series - Live Action)

Created by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford - the creative forces behind "Doctor Who" and "Torchwood" - the series follows the adventures of two 16-year-old school boys, Tom and Benny, who battle to save Earth from the Nekross, an alien race. While Tom lives a seemingly ordinary life with his dad and grandmother, he hides a deep secret: his family members are wizards. Following the tremendous success of season one in the UK, "Wizards vs Aliens" will make its American debut on The Hub. The series is produced by BBC Cymru Wales and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment.

"SheZow" (Hub Acquired Series - Animated)

Twelve-year-old Guy Hamdon is a natural cut-up who fancies himself an extreme dude with his own catch phrase, "It's a GUY thing." Guy lives the dream of every rough-and-tumble boy when he discovers an awesome power ring belonging to his deceased aunt, which transforms him into a mighty superhero SheZow! There's just one tiny catch - the ring that gives Guy his amazing super powers was only meant to be worn by a girl and the result is absolutely she-larious! Guy must use his super powers to battle mega-villains while sporting an outrageous female superhero costume, which actually ends up helping him tremendously on his own personal journey toward becoming one heck of a super man. The series is produced by Moody Street Kids & Kickstart Productions Inc.

Fall 2013

"Spooksville" (Hub Original Series - Live Action)

Based on the acclaimed book series by author Christopher Pike, the new kid in town discovers that he holds the key to a battle between good and evil that has been taking place for centuries in a bizarre small town that plays host to a wide array of supernatural and unexplained occurrences. The half-hour series is produced by Front Street Pictures and Springville Productions in association with Jane Startz Productions.

"Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch" (Hub Original Series - Animated)

The pop culture phenomenon SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH will return to television in the all-new original animated series with "High School Musical" star Ashley Tisdale, who lends her voice to the lead character of Sabrina. The series features the iconic teen character re-imagined for a new generation. The series is produced by Moonscoop; Archie Comic Publications, Inc.; DSK Group, India; Laughing Lion; and Telegael Teoranta.

"Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising" (Hub Original Family Movie - Animated)

The eagerly anticipated conclusion of the CG animated Daytime Emmy(R) Award winning series will make its network television premiere as a Hub Original Family Movie. A 90-minute epilogue to the final season wraps up the series that chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron. The Hub Original Family Movie is produced by Hasbro Studios. The final season of "Transformers Prime Beast Hunters" begins on Friday, March 22, 7:30 p.m. ET.

Early 2014

"Stan Lee's Mighty 7" (Hub Original Family Movie - Animated)

The series features brand new characters voiced by an all-star cast.
