The Hub's BARK WEEK to Kick Off 8/17
Fresh off the biting adventures of Discovery's "Shark Week" comes the HUB Network's celebration of a furrier creature - dogs. Starting Sunday, August 17 to Friday, August 22, the Network is bringing everyone's favorite family member and best friend to its air with "Bark Week," a special week full of fun canine programming for dog-lovers of all ages to enjoy. The tail-wagging week will feature four popular series from Animal Planet, a sister network also owned by Discovery, called "America's Cutest," "It's Me or the Dog," "Bad Dog!" and "Too Cute!" airing for the first time on the HUB Network, champions of family fun and the only network dedicated to providing kids and their families with entertainment they can watch together. It will also feature a different dog-themed family movie every night, including "Cats & Dogs," "101 Dalmatians," "102 Dalmatians," "Snow Buddies," "Good Boy" and "Scooby-Doo."
"'Bark Week' is fun new way that hub NETWORK delivers on its brand promise of making family fun by celebrating dogs and their special relationships with families," said Dena Kapan, Chief Marketing Officer, HUB Network. "By packaging popular, family friendly dog shows and dog-themed movies together with dog-umentary interstitials, the hub NETWORK is providing comical, clever and relatable content that the whole family will enjoy watching together."
"Bark Week" kicks off Sunday, August 17 with special presentations of the movie "Cats & Dogs" followed by the Animal Planet series "Bad Dog!" "It's Me or the Dog" and "America's Cutest." Beginning Monday, August 18 to Friday, August 22, the Network will also air an episode of Animal Planet's "Too Cute!" followed by a dog-themed family movie. It will cap off each night with an episode of "America's Cutest," an episode of "Bad Dog!" and an episode of "It's Me or The Dog." Please see below for a detailed schedule. "Bark Week" will also give viewers a humorous look into the wonderful world of dogs with fun dog-umentary pieces airing as interstitials throughout the week. Much like the brave explorers of "Shark Week," who lower themselves into shark Infested waters in the name of Science and learning, the pieces will feature the hub NETWORK intrepidly entering a dog-infested bark park to study the habits of the domesticated canine it its natural habitat.
