When a ghost suddenly begins haunting a neighborhood bookstore and releases fictional characters into the real world, four middle schoolers—Rueben, Chevon, Curtis and Donna—must team up to solve the mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business. The friends give the specter a name—Ghostwriter—and are led on one exciting adventure after another, unlocking more of the mystery with every featured book.
Ghostwriter shows our four heroes solving their personal problems and uncovering Ghostwriter’s mysterious identity through literature. The multicultural cast and urban setting allow for a broad audience of children (ages 6-11) to see themselves in the characters, while the show’s curriculum encourages kids to see reading different types of literature as fun. Ghostwriter also aims to increase reading comprehension, vocabulary, reading fundamentals, and writing.
Ghostwriter premiered on Apple TV+ in November 2019, launching with 7 episodes spread over narrative arcs that bring viewers on a magical adventure, inviting them to solve the Ghostwriter mystery alongside the four adventurous friends.
