Apple has released a brand new trailer for ‘Harriet the Spy’, a new animated adaptation of the iconic children’s novel by Louise Fitzhugh, chronicling the coming-of-age adventures of aspiring writer Harriet M. Welsch. Produced by The Jim Henson Company, the series stars Beanie Feldstein as the outspoken title character and will arrive on TV+ in November with the second half of the series coming later next year.
Apple’s partnership with The Jim Henson Company currently includes “Fraggle Rock: Rock On!,” as well as the upcoming reboot of the classic series and recently added bonus specials, “Down at Fraggle Rock,” “Doozer Music” and “Fraggle Songs,” which are available on Apple TV+ now. ’Harriet the Spy’ boosts Apple’s already impressive and growing library of children’s programming available on TV+.
Set in 1960s New York when the original book was published, “Harriet the Spy” follows the outspoken and perpetually curious 11-year-old Harriet M. Welsch. More than anything, Harriet wants to be a writer, and in order to be a good writer, she’ll need to know everything. And to know everything means she’ll need to spy … on everyone! Joining Feldstein and Lynch, the series features Lacey Chabert as Marion Hawthorne, the ringleader of a group of popular girls at Harriet’s school, and additional voice cast Kimberly Brooks, Crispin Freeman, Grey Griffin, Bumper Robinson and Charlie Schlatter.
