Fox unveils family line-ups

Published on .

Fox Kids Worldwide announced its fall line-up for both Fox Kids Network and the re-launched Fox Family Channel. Fox Kids, which lost ratings to ABC and Nickelodeon this year, added eight new animated series and two new live-action series to its Saturday morning and weekday line-ups. Among the additions are revivals of "Woody Woodpecker" and "Mr. Potato Head," a cartoon series based on the forthcoming Sony Corp. film "Godzilla," and a live-action series called "Young Hercules," from the producers of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys." Fox Family Channel, which will be launched in 74 million TV households on Aug. 15, will program its 7 a.m.-to-6 p.m. hours around four branded blocks aimed at different demos, anchored by "The Basement," an older-skewing kids afternoon block with an MTV-like feel.
