The animated Slacker Cats will premiere in August. ABC Family's first animated series chronicles not-so-smart tabbies Buckley and Eddie.

The channel also said it is in production on Holiday in Handcuffs, a movie starring Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hartand is working on Snow Globe, about a woman who passes into the world inside her grandmother's snow globe. They are two of the 10 planned new movies for the year, which also includes Nature of the Beast, a werewolf story with Eric Mabius and Eddie Kaye Thomas. That movie will air around Halloween.

The hit Kyle XY will return with 13 new episodes June 11, followed by 10 new episodes of Lincoln Heights in September and Wildfire in January with 13 new episodes. Fallen also will have four new hours.

The network also will premiere VirtualRush.com, a social community site that will be used in conjunction with the premiere of Greek. It also will have an online presence for KyleXY.com, including a current one where viewers can watch the first-season episodes before the June 11 premiere.

The channel also has acquired the more recent episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos--hosted by ABC's Tom Bergeron--and That '70s Show. It also will be the home of the basic cable premiere of The Incredibles.
