The Hub Network Scores Three Parents' Choice Awards
The HUB Network, a destination for kids and their families, has been honored with three Parents' Choice Awards. "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series" and "Family Game Night" are recipients of the Parents' Choice Fun Stuff award, and the network's newest live-action series, "Spooksville," won the Parents' Choice Approved Seal.
The Parents' Choice Awards is the nation's oldest nonprofit program created to recognize quality children's media and the awards are designed to help parents and caregivers make informed decisions about which new products are right for children. The program honors the best material for children including books, toys, music and storytelling, magazines, software, video games, television and websites.
The Parents' Choice Fun Stuff Award is given to recipients who have age-appropriate products that are nonviolent, well produced and fun. The Parents' Choice Approved Seal is awarded to a wholesome product that helps children enjoy developing their physical, emotional, social or academic skills and is given on the basis of the production, entertainment and human values they exemplify.
Winner of the 2013 Daytime Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Children's Series, "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series" brings anthological storytelling to life by embracing the thrill of the chill, the nervous page-turning giggle and the scream that only comes when someone - or something - touches your shoulder on a dark and stormy night. The series is inspired by the master of kids' spooky storytelling, R.L. Stine, and is produced by Front Street Pictures in association with The Hatchery, LLC.
Hosted by Todd Newton, the 2012 Daytime Emmy(R) Award winner for Outstanding Game Show Host, "Family Game Night" features a line-up of larger-than-life beloved, classic games where families of varying sizes are picked from the audience to compete for a chance to win cash and prizes. The series is produced by Hasbro Studios and Zoo Productions.
Based on the book series by acclaimed author Christopher Pike, "Spooksville" follows the new kid in town who discovers that he holds the key to a battle between good and evil that has been taking place for centuries in a bizarre small town that plays host to a wide array of Supernatural and unexplained occurrences. The live-action series is produced by Springville Productions, Front Street Productions, and Jane Startz Productions.
