The channel, a joint venture between Disney and RTL Group, will premiere “Once Upon a Time” on Sept. 12, following its initial broadcast on Sept. 4 on RTL’s pay TV channel Passion.
Created by “Lost” scribes Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, “Once Upon a Time” is set in both the real world and a fairytale land, following the lives of characters on both sides of the magical divide.
The web will also air Disney’s animated spin-off “Tron: Uprising” plus new episodes of “Glee” and “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”
Presenting Super RTL’s new lineup Thursday in Cologne — and celebrating the web’s 15th anniversary — CEO Claude Schmit said, “We have been the undisputed market leader among children for 15 years, that is a notable success in the TV landscape. Thanks to our shareholders RTL Group and Disney, we are well equipped for the coming season.”
