THE HUB TV NETWORK PICKS UP NEW ORIGINAL ANIMATED SERIES

‘SABRINA: SECRETS OF A TEENAGE WITCH’ FOR SUMMER 2013

Ashley Tisdale to Voice the Title Role

LOS ANGELES – The Hub TV network, a destination for kids and their families, announced today that the pop culture phenomenon SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH will return to television in the all-new original animated series, “Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch.” Actress, singer and High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale will lend her voice to the lead character of Sabrina. Currently in production and slated to premiere in the summer of 2013, the series will feature the iconic teen character re-imagined for a new generation.

The animated “Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch” series was acquired by The Hub and produced by Moonscoop, Archie Comic Publications, Inc., DSK Group, India, Laughing Lion, and Telegael Teoranta. Writer Dean Batali (“What’s Up Warthogs,” “That 70’s Show,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) will be story editor and Trevor Wall ("Hero 108") will serve as director for the series.

In the upcoming series “Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch,” Sabrina is half-witch and half-human, and all super hero as she leads two vastly different lives; one disguised as a normal, klutzy high school student and the other as the top sorcery student in the magical world. When her two worlds collide, Sabrina is the only one who has the power to battle her foes, while managing to keep her magical identity a secret from humankind.

Ashley Tisdale is an actress and singer best known for starring in the Emmy® Award-winning High School Musical film series. The High School Musical series became a successful franchise, which included two television films, a feature movie, a spin-off and numerous soundtrack albums. Tisdale’s work led to a prominent voice role in the critically acclaimed animated series “Phineas & Ferb.” Additional credits include “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,” “Hellcats,” and, more recently, a multi-episode arc in “Sons Of Anarchy” as well as roles in feature films including Aliens in the Attic and the upcoming Scary Movie 5. Tisdale also runs a successful production company, Blondie Girl Productions, and their first series “Miss Advised” premiered on Bravo this summer.

    yeah…she’s amazing

    Well this is new. Sabrina in the main 2 incarnations was either A) a normal high school student who happened to have magic or B) a normal middle school student who happened to have magic. There wasn’t much in the way of being a sorcery student or battling foes (except for mean girls).

    Sounds great. The live-action series and both animated series were only comdeic, but having this one with some action and drama mixed in is a great twist. I always thought it would have been a lot more interesting if she fought villains like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Hopefully this is going to be a hand drawn series rather than a flash animation, especially if they want to make action sequences look a lot smoother.
