Following the launch of Apple TV+, Apple has shared the full official trailer for "Ghostwriter," one of the television shows that's available to watch right now.


The show, which is aimed at kids, is a remake of the "Ghostwriter" series that aired on PBS from 1992 to 1995.
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.
"Ghostwriter" is one of the first shows available on Apple TV+ alongside "The Morning Show," "For All Mankind," "Dickinson," and "See."

I don’t think Netflix has anything to worry about Apple entering the streaming biz. It seems Apple wants to keep their offerings family friendly only. And thats cool. I just don’t see them doing the hard “R” edgier stuff that Netflix offers.

I’m happy for everyone who is excited for this, but man I don’t really watch TV anymore, and I’m getting used to doing other things instead of watching tv shows. I might be in the minority but I’m probably not going to be an Apple+ customer no matter how good (or bad based on some of the comments) the tv shows are.

This show was so good when I was a kid. I totally forgot about it until this reboot.
I agree I use to never watch PBS but I tuned in for Ghostwriter.

I went off on it in my own post. Apple lied saying they were not doing R and Mature and they are but at least they have a few Y, Y7 and PG movie but still. Remember only Disney+ won't have R Rated content and it anything is too edgy it will be on Hulu which Disney fully owns now.

Apple never said that, it was a rumor.

They’d have to be plain stupid to not produce mature content. I doubt we’ll see HBO type shows though.
There were plenty of the usual suspects from the Apple-hate crowd saying exactly that, that Apple was only going to produce Disney-type rated G content. With no profanity allowed. They were foaming at the mouth at the thought of not getting the sex, language and violence they like.

There was even a ridiculous article claiming Cook was micromanaging every episode of every series, aggravating producers by sending notes saying “Don’t be so mean”. The Apple-hate crowd worked themselves into a frenzy over that one, calling (as usual) for Cook to be fired lol.
