No Comment 78 Views

Did I or did I not, just call this one? Recently I reported about a new Transformers showing heading to the Hub (partnership between Hasbro and Discovery communications) and in there I talked about a potentail for other Hasbro IPs as well as perhaps more video games. Well today, G.I. Joe was announced for the The Hub. One point for me.

Coming this Thanksgiving holiday weekend to The Hub, a cable network for kids and their families, is a special two-part premiere of the new half-hour, action-adventure animated series “G.I. Joe Renegades,” Friday, November 26. The Hub is a joint venture of Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc., and is available to 60 million U.S. cable and satellite households.

The new animated series, a re-imagining of the popular, original series “G.I. Joe A Real American Hero,” takes viewers back to the origins of the G.I. Joe storyline, in which the world’s most elite renegade force of highly trained specialists are forced to band together to prevent their nemesis, the evil forces of Cobra Industries, from achieving global domination.

“G.I. Joe Renegades” is produced for The Hub by Hasbro Studios. The series is executive produced by Jeff Kline, whose television credits include “Transformers: Prime” and “Jackie Chan Adventures.”

Preceding the series debut, The Hub will present a half-hour behind-the-scenes special, “Hub Exclusive: ‘G.I. Joe Renegades’ and ‘Transformers: Prime’” (3:30 p.m. ET), showcasing two original series on The Hub. The special is followed by the world premiere of the first two half-hour episodes (5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. ET) of “G.I. Joe Renegades.” The series will continue in its regular time period, Friday, December 3, with an encore presentation at 5 p.m. ET and a new episode premiere at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Starring in the series premiere are Lee Majors (“The Six Million Dollar Man”) as “General Abernathy,” and Charlie Adler, the original Cobra Commander from the animated series “G.I. Joe: Resolute,” who reprises his role in the new series. “G.I. Joe Renegades” also includes an all-star lineup of story editors, including Marty Isenberg (“Ben 10,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Batman the Animated Series”) and Henry Gilroy (“Star Wars: Clone Wars,” “The Tick” and “Batman the Animated Series.”)

A full schedule of the “G.I. Joe Renegades” and related programming follows. (All times ET).
