Ghostwriter is a remake of the original 1990s PBS series. The story follows a group of kids who discover a ghost in a neighborhood bookstore and they go on to solve mysteries related to fiction. Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The TV short is centered around a great mystery: Was Snoopy a top-secret astronaut? The short stars Jeff Goldblum and Charles M. Schulz’s beloved Peanuts characters.
Apple’s future plans for its streaming service
Apple’s World War II drama “Greyhound” starring Tom Hanks, one of the first well-received titles on its streaming service, has encouraged Apple to launch more feature films on its streaming service. It is reported that the Cupertino tech will adopt a ‘Netflix-like’ strategy for Apple TV+. This could mean that new releases will come at a faster pace on Apple’s streaming service, possibly one new movie per month.
