Apple TV+ Releases Trailers for Children’s Shows ‘Ghostwriter’ ‘Snoopy in Space’ and ‘Helpsters’ (Video)

All three will be available when streaming platform launches Nov. 1

Apple TV+ released three new trailers on Friday for its upcoming children’s programs, including its “Ghostwriter” reboot.

“Ghostwriter” is a re-imagining of the 1992 series from Sesame Workshop. Apple describes it as, “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.  Each episode story arc is grouped around literature, featuring classics and new works commissioned from popular authors like DJ Machale and Kwame Alexander.”

Additionally, Apple TV+ showed off first looks at “Snoopy in Space” and “Helpsters.”

In “Snoopy in Space,” Snoopy fulfills his dreams and embarks on his next big adventure–becoming a NASA astronaut. Joined by Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang, Snoopy takes command of the International Space Station and explores the moon and beyond. The series is made up of 12 animated shorts.

“Helpsters” is a new live-action pre-school series from the makers of Sesame Street. Cody and the Helpsters are a team of vibrant monsters who love to solve problems.

Last year, Apple signed deals with Sesame Workshop and DHX Media, who owns Peanuts Worldwide, to develop children’s content.  Apple TV+ will launch Nov. 1 and cost $4.99 a month, or nothing for a year for those who buy a new Mac, iPhone or iPad.
