Apple TV+ has announced a straight-to-series order for “Jane,” a new mission-driven series for kids and families from Emmy Award winner J.J. Johnson, Sinking Ship Entertainment and the Jane Goodall Institute.
Dr. Jane Goodall is an English primatologist and anthropologist who is considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. She’s best known for her 60-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees since she first went to Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania in 1960
“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.”
From Sinking Ship Entertainment, “Jane,” a live action/CGI blended series, is created and executive produced by company partner J.J. Johnson, with the Jane Goodall Institute also serving as executive producers.
“Jane” marks the second Apple Original series that will be produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment, joining Daytime Emmy Award-winning and acclaimed series “Ghostwriter,” which recently premiered its second season on Apple TV+.
