Appel TV+ has given a straight-to-series order for Jane, a new show inspired by Dr Jane Goodall.
From Emmy Award winner J.J. Johnson, Sinking Ship Entertainment and the Jane Goodall Institute, Jane follows Jane Garcia, a 10-year-old girl with an active imagination. Through pretend play, Jane and her trusty teammates work to protect an endangered animal in each mission-driven episode because, according to her idol: “Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, can they be saved.”
The live action/CGI blended series is created and executive produced by Johnson, with the Jane Goodall Institute also serving as executive producers. It marks the second Apple Original series that will be produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment, joining Daytime Emmy Award-winning Ghostwriter, which recently premiered its second season on Apple TV+.
It joins other Apple TV+ kids’ TV shows such as Helpsters, The Snoopy Show, Doug Unplugs, Stillwater, Fraggle Rock and Harriet the Spy.
