The Hub TV Network Adds Out-of-this-World Series 'ALF' and "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman' to Program Lineup in June

New Acquisitions Join "Mork & Mindy," "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch," and "The Facts of Life" in Primetime Schedule

LOS ANGELES – This June, The Hub TV network, a television network for kids and their families, will add two fan-favorite, live-action series, “ALF” (Monday, June 4) and “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (Sunday, June 3) to its primetime program lineup.  With strong and devoted fan bases for both shows, the newly acquired series will join the current primetime schedule that features “Mork & Mindy,” “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” and “The Facts of Life,” building on The Hub’s successful strategy of presenting programming based on beloved properties in the kids and family entertainment space.

“ALF” (8:30 p.m. ET, Mondays-Thursdays), follows the adventures of Gordon Shumway, a furry, wise-cracking alien from the planet Melmac who crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family. The Tanners offer him a home and give him the nickname ALF, short for “Alien Life Form.” Created by Tom Patchett (“The Carol Burnett Show”) and Paul Fusco (also the puppeteer for ALF), the half-hour sitcom rose to popularity in the late 1980s cementing itself in the pop culture zeitgeist. Distributed by Alien Productions.

“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (8-11 p.m. ET, Sundays) features the daring exploits of the legendary Superman in an exciting, action-packed hour-long series featuring iconic comic book characters Clark Kent (Dean Cain, “Las Vegas”), his superhuman alter ego and Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher, “Desperate Housewives”) in the most unrequited romance of all time.  Distributed by December 3rd Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Beginning June 3, the new primetime schedule of popular series will be:
