Apple TV+ takes the first look at “Harriet the Spy”
The new series premiered on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 19, 2021.
“New adventures, same fearless 11 year old spy,” reads the description of the video that was published on the official Apple TV+ YouTube channel. We’ve embedded the four-minute video right above so give it a quick look if you’re interested in this new animated series, and don’t forget to watch the first trailer for the series that we showed you a while ago. Starring Beanie Feldstein, Jane Lynch and Lacey Chabert, “Harriet the Spy” joins Apple’s growing list of children programming.
From the original announcement published on the Apple Newsroom:
Set in 1960s New York when the original book was published, the new series will be voiced by a star-studded cast including Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee Beanie Feldstein, who will star as Harriet, a fiercely independent, adventurous, curious 11-year-old girl. More than anything, Harriet wants to be a writer, and in order to be a good writer, you need to know everything, and in order to know everything, you have to be a spy! Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch will voice the role of Ole Golly, Harriet’s larger-than-life, no-nonsense nanny. Additional voice talent includes Lacey Chabert as Marion Hawthorne, the ringleader of a group of smug, popular girls at Harriet’s school.
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett wrote and also performs the original theme song for the series. And yes, the original song is available from Apple Music. Adapted by The Jim Henson Company and Rehab Entertainment, the series is a fun watch for everyone, especially families looking for something to dive into.
