Interview with Luke Matheny (Executive Producer) and Andrew Orenstein (Producer) of “Ghostwriter” on Apple TV+ by Suzanne 10/13/22
This is a very interesting show aimed at children, but it’s fun to watch for adults who like fantasy and magic as well. I enjoyed speaking with both the kid stars and these producers. Don’t miss this show’s season 3 return, especially if you have kids.
When a ghost haunts a neighborhood bookstore and starts releasing fictional characters into the real world, a group of friends work to solve an exciting mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business.
The Emmy Award-winning series, which has also earned a highly coveted Prix Jeunesse Award, a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Award and recognition from Common Sense Media since its debut, was developed for television by J.J. Johnson and Andrew Orenstein with Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny directing five episodes from the season. Matheny and Orenstein executive produce alongside Johnson, Christin Simms, and Blair Powers for Sinking Ship Entertainment and Kay Wilson Stallings for Sesame Workshop.
Interview with Princess Mapp, Daire McLeod and Nour Assaf of “Ghostwriter” on Apple TV+ by Suzanne 10/13/22
This is a fun kids’ show, but I think it’s worthwhile for adults to watch as well. I enjoyed speaking to these kids. There was a successful kids’ series on PBS with the same name and general idea in 1992. They brought it back with this version in 2019 on Apple TV+. This season, there is a new cast and they’re including more socially conscious story elements.
