The serie and introduces the iconic game characters as young modern-day sleuths, with the classic weapons and locations. Remember Colonel Mustard and Professor Plum? And the candlestick? But this time, the characters need to find a way to work together. The six very different kids discover they have a lot more in common than they thought as they uncover hidden treasures and decipher cryptic knowledge to reveal a secret society. The mystery they unravel and the accusations they make, could very well define their own futures.

Produced by Hasbro Studios, “CLUE” will premiere two back-to-back, half-hour episodes Monday, November 14 (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET).  Additional new episodes will premiere daily through Thursday, November 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET, culminating in a five-episode, back-to-back marathon on Saturday, November 19 (1:30 p.m. ET).  Encore marathons will run throughout the Thanksgiving holiday week.  For a complete schedule go to Hubworld.

The Hub’s “Get A CLUE” sweepstakes makes it possible for viewers watching live to win prize packages representing each of the six popular characters from the game.  During each new episode of the five-part mini-series as well as the encore marathon on Saturday, November 19, Hub viewers will have the chance to call in and win one of six character-themed prize packages.  Online visitors will be able to decipher clues to earn virtual rewards, unlock an interactive map, take quizzes and polls, get caught up on episodes they may have missed, and much more. Fans can follow the series and characters on Twitter at @HubTVNetwork and Facebook and extend the viewing experience online by participating in special mini-mysteries after each episode is televised.
