Hasbro Studios was at the Television Critics Association (mostly TCA for short) this morning and they discussed what to expect when The Hub, a cable network between Hasbro Studios and Discovery Communications, launches on October 10, 2010.
Two press releases coincided with the appearance, one that announced the cast of the upcoming Transformers: Prime
cartoon, a CGI-based show, and the other announcing that the original Generation 1 cartoon Transformers would also air on The Hub.
The following is the Transformers: Prime
cast announced in the press release (PDF
); however, characters other than Mr. Cullen and Mr. Welker are still unofficial at this point.
Peter Cullen ("Transformers" Trilogy – Optimus Prime)
Frank Welker ("Transformers" Trilogy - Megatron)
Gina Torres ("MadTV")
James Remar ("Dexter"; misspelled as "Remer" in press release)
Josh Keaton ("Justice League: Circle of Two Earths")
Kevin Michael Richardson ("The Batman")
Markie Post ("The Fall Guy")
A separate press release (PDF again
) announces that the original Generation 1 Transformers cartoon would also be airing on The Hub. Additional shows acquired include GI Joe: A Real American Hero
, Doogie Howser, M.D.
, and The Wonder Years
It is unknown when these shows will air on the network, but there is a great possibility new episodes of Transformers: Prime
will air in the "Kids Afternoon/Kids Prime" block that takes place from 1 PM to 6 PM.
