Like one of the little kids who watches its programs, The Hub Network will soon attempt to see if it can reach beyond its grasp.
The network, jointly owned by cable programmer Discovery Communications and toy maker Hasbro, expects to gradually abandon the reruns of “Step by Step,” “Family Ties” and “Sabrina, The Teenage Witch” in favor of originals designed to lure kids and families together. The first step in that effort is “Parents Don’t Just Understand,” a 22-episode reality series from Endemol’s 51 Minds Entertainment hosted by Joey Fatone that is slated to debut in the fall. The series will let kids and parents get a peek at what it’s like to live inside each other’s shoes.
