The acclaimed series returning this year include the Emmy Award-winning series “Ghostwriter” with an entirely new cast. The title, targeted at 6-11-year-olds, was developed for television by J.J. Johnson and Andrew Orenstein, with Academy Award-winning and DGA Award-nominated Luke Matheny directing the first episode.
