ABC Family will premiere a new kids' line-up in September that features a combination of anime, live-action, and animated series. The lineup is led by "Tokyo Pig," an anime comedy produced by Miramax Television. This marks Miramax Television's foray into kids' television. Also debuting on ABC Family is the popular live-action/CGI parallel universe fantasy, "Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension" and the animated "NASCAR Racers," bringing the national obsession with stock car racing to a younger audience. The new weekday schedule debuts Monday, September 2. "Beyblade," ABC Family's highest rated series this season among Boys 6-11 on Saturdays, and "Medabots," will create an anime hour, seven days a week.
