The series is a reimagining of the 1992 hit series from Sesame Workshop. The modern-day Ghostwriter maintains a city-based, multicultural cast, inviting children ages 6-11 to see themselves on screen as they learn to appreciate a range of new and classic literature. In its second season, the series’ young heroes work to save their bookstore and discover the true identity of the Ghostwriter while introducing audiences to fresh tales like Malia and the Magic Paintbrush and The Cobalt Mask, and familiar literary characters including Dr. Watson of Sherlock Holmes fame.

Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny returns as the writer and director of the series, with PGA-nominated Andrew Orenstein serving as showrunner. Sesame Workshop’s executive vice president of Creative and Production Kay Wilson Stallings is executive producer. Ghostwriter is produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment.

Other family-first offerings on Apple TV+ include the award-winning series Helpsters, also from Sesame Workshop, Snoopy in Space from Peanuts, Fraggle Rock from The Jim Henson Company. Upcoming new series for kids and families that will also soon premiere on Apple TV+ Doug Unplugs from DreamWorks Animation, and Stillwater from Gaumont and Scholastic Entertainment.
