New episodes of returning favorites will be joined by a couple of premieres when Fox launches a new season of programming on its U.K. cable and satellite channel in early 2003. Newcomers RoboRoach and Moville Mysteries will fill out a slate populated by the likes of Jackie Chan Adventures, Hamtaro, Braceface and Totally Spies!
Acquired from RTV Family Ent., RoboRoach follows the adventures of Rube, a cockroach who can transform himself into a morphing insect equipped with superhero powers. The 52 x 11 animated series will launch on Jan. 6, 2003.
Moville Mysteries, acquired from Nelvana Int’l, features a boy who lives in a town full of strange and unexplained phenomena. The 26 x 30 series will launch in April 2003.
