As part of their drive to bolster their programming lineup, The Hub will be launching a brand new show from the UK titled “Wizards vs. Aliens” on June 1, Saturday, at 7 pm ET. The show is notable for being created by former Doctor Who showrunner Russel T. Davies and Phil Ford (who worked on the Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures). The show is produced by BBC Cymru Wales and FremantleMedia Kids & Family Ent.
Wizards vs. Aliens focuses on a 16 year old boy named Tom Clarke, who reveals the secret of his status as a magic-wielding wizard to his best friend Benny. Together, the two friends use their skills and abilities to save the world from the alien Nekross, who have the ability to feed on magic.
It’s not all about new shows, though, as June 1 will also see the return of The Hub’s established show Pound Puppies, which will be returning with two new back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 am ET.
