Apple TV+ isn’t a stranger to family-friendly entertainment. And now the streaming platform is getting one more title to add to the library.
On Monday, Apple announced that it has given a straight-to-series order for a new family-friendly show called Jane. It’s inspired by the work of the acclaimed Dr. Jane Goodall, produced by Emmy Award-winner J.J. Johnson, in partnership with Sinking Ship Entertainment and the Jane Goodall Institute.
The new series will follow a 10-year-old named Jane Garcia, described as having an “active imagination”. Through pretend play, Garcia will work with her teammates to protect endangered species from all across the globe. Each episode will be mission-driven, focusing on a new animal each time. As Goodall herself says, “Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, can they be saved.”
Jane will be a live-action series, but it will showcase plenty of CGI work as well. You can see that hinted at in the title treatment for the series just above.
Sinking Ship Entertainment has worked with Apple in the past, bringing Ghostwriter to Apple TV+ as a launch series.
No word yet when Jane will premiere on Apple’s video streaming platform, but hopefully we’ll know more soon.
