HOT SUMMER FUN IN STORE THIS AUGUST FOR THE HUB TV NETWORK’S ‘TRANSFORMERS PRIME’ AND ‘TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS’
Season Two of The Hub’s “Transformers Prime” Returns
With All-New Episodes On A New Day and Time August 24
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Team Up For Colossal Two-Part
“Transformers Rescue Bots” Time-Travel Episode Guest Starring Tim Curry
Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are back! The two iconic Autobots will return to The Hub Television Network, a destination for kids and their families, doing double duty this month. The duo will appear in “Transformers Prime,” which resumes season two on a new day and in a new time Friday, August 24, 7 p.m. ET, and will team up for the first time to work side-by-side with the Rescue Bots in a special back-to-back, two-part presentation of “Transformers Rescue Bots” Saturday August 18, 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET.
The 2012 Daytime Emmy® Award-winning “Transformers Prime,” produced by Hasbro Studios, features archrivals Optimus Prime and Megatron once again facing off in their legendary battle for Earth as the Autobots and Decepticons uncover clues to change the balance of power in the war, and also potentially revive their home planet of Cybertron.
“Transformers Prime” resumes new episodes of season two with “Hurt,” which finds Miko and Wheeljack embarking on a quest for revenge after discovering that the final relic in the hunt may have proved more fatal to Bulkhead than the Insecticon warriors who pursued him.
Actor Tim Curry (Clue) will reprise his role as the villainous Dr. Morocco in a special two-part episode of “Transformers Rescue Bots.” The animated series from Hasbro Studios centers on a group of Autobots charged by Optimus Prime with protecting and learning about humans on a technologically advanced island. Teamed with a human family of first responders, they keep peace and safety in their new home.
The two-part, back-to-back episode, “It’s a Bot Time,” follows Doc Greene’s experiment with a time machine that goes awry resulting in the Bots, Cody and Frankie ending up in 1939 Griffin Rock. In part two, a return home to the normally pristine Griffin Rock proves unsettling as it has morphed into the dreary city of Moropolis run by the sinister Doctor Morocco (Curry).
