“SheZow,” an animated series from Australia, makes its U.S. debut Saturday, June 1, 12:30 p.m. ET on Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families.
The series adds to the network’s current line-up of superhero excitement and action-packed adventure. “SheZow” is produced by Kickstart Productions and Moody Street Kids along with partners Film Victoria and Vision Animation and is distributed by DHX Media.
The animated series follows 12-year-old Guy Hamdon (Sam Vincent, “Voltron Force”), a natural cut-up who fancies himself an extreme dude with his own macho catch phrase, “It’s a GUY thing.”
Guy lives the dream of every rough-and-tumble boy when he discovers an awesome power ring, which transforms him into a mighty superhero. Pretty cool, but there’s just one tiny catch — the ring that gives Guy his amazing superpowers was only meant to be worn by a girl and the result is absolutely she-larious.
As the amazing crime-fighting SheZow, Guy must use his superpowers to battle mega-villains while sporting an outrageous female superhero costume, which actually ends up helping him on his own personal journey toward becoming one heck of a superman.
The half-hour acquired series was created and written by Obie Scott Wade (“Julius & Friends”). Loris Kramer Lunsford (“Johnny Test”), Jason Netter (“Wolverine and the X-Men”), Wade, Gillian Carr (“Flea-bitten”), Huoi Seong Low, and Brenda Wooding all serve as executive producers.
