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,
