Apple TV+ has greenlit “Surfside Girls,” a new, 10-episode live action kids and family series from May Chan, and based on the graphic novel series of the same name by author Kim Dwinell. The logline: “Surfside Girls” is an adventure series starring Miya Cech (“Rim of the World,” “The Astronauts”) as ‘Jade’ and Yaya Gosselin (“We Can be Heroes,” “FBI: Most Wanted”) as ‘Sam,’ two best friends who jump in to save their town. Sam and Jade are psyched to spend their summer riding the waves and catching the rays. That is until they meet a ghost. The girls dive head first into a mystery about a pirate ship and the cursed treasure that allegedly lies beneath Surfside’s beloved Danger Point bluff. After meeting a pirate ghost named Remi, Sam wants to help him break the curse while Jade is determined to find a scientific explanation for the existence of ghosts.

Produced by Endeavor Content and IDW Entertainment, “Surfside Girls” will be written and executive produced by Chan, who also serves as showrunner. Paul Stupin (“Switched at Birth,” “Dawson’s Creek”) serves as executive producer. Alex Diaz and Julie Sagalowsky Diaz (“The Shannara Chronicles,” “What’s Up Warthogs!”) serve as writers and executive producers. America Young (“Roswell, New Mexico,” “Legacies”) will direct and executive produce the first two episodes. Lydia Antonini (“Locke & Key,” “Halo Forward Unto Dawn,” “October Faction”) will also serve as executive producer on the series. Paul Davidson and Jeff Brustrom will serve as executive producers on behalf of IDW.
