Discovery reveals details of Hub relaunch, puts Henry Schleiff in charge

Hasbro-produced kids shows like My Little Pony and Transformers Rescue Bots will remain in morning and afternoon dayparts, but primetime will see the addition of Discovery library fare such as Superhuman, Time Warp, Flying Wild Alaska, Africa and Extreme Engineering: Biggest Reveals

Meanwhile, group president Henry Schleiff will oversee the channel. Deadline Hollywood has the complete report here.
