Apple TV+ launched the past week which means it has a slate of shows about to air and almost daily updates.
One of the most awaited shows that didn’t premier when the streamer was launched was ‘Ghostwriter,’ the remake of the kid’s show of the same name that aired on PBS from 1992 to 1995.
The show is about a group of four kids who form a team to solve mysteries related to well-known storybook characters. It’s one of the first Apple TV+ original shows besides the already-premiered ‘See,’ ‘For All Mankind,’ ‘Dickinson’, and ‘The Mornin Show,’ featuring Jennifer Aniston’s return to TV.
The official trailer is a tad more of 2 minutes-long and gives fans a good view of the main characters and their adventures.
“When a ghost haunts a neighborhood bookstore and starts releasing fictional characters into the real world, four kids must team up to solve an exciting mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business,” the official synopsis reads.
Apple TV+ launched on November 1 for a starter cost of $4.99 per month. For people interested but not too convinced, there’s a free 7-day trial before committing to the paid plan. As of today, the streaming service is free for students with Apple Music, and also free for 12 months when you buy a new Apple product such as a new iPhone, Mac, iPad, iPod Touch or Apple TV.
For many in the business, Apple TV+ has fallen a bit short in its content offer in comparison to the other streaming companies. It certainly seems true, at least so far, but they are increasingly offering more niche content in what seems a calculated bet before starting to offer more and more content.
