As UPN negotiates with sister network Nickelodeon to expand kids programming on the weblet, UPN said it will add three animated series from Marvel and a live-action series from Saban Entertainment to its Sunday morning kids block in the fall.

The Saban live-action comedy adventure series “BeetleBorgs” will run from 9-9:30 a.m., followed at 9:30 by “Incredible Hulk & Friends,” a mix of episodes of UPN’s “The Incredible Hulk” plus episodes of Marvel Comics’ “The Fantastic Four” and “Iron Man.”

The animated “X-Men” will run from 10-10:30 a.m. Marvel’s first modern superhero, “Spider-Man,” rounds out the block at 10:30.

A premiere date for the UPN Kids Sunday morning programming block has yet to be set.
