Apple TV+ has a new TV show coming that's inspired by the work of Dr. Jane Goodall. Jane will be aimed at kids and "follows Jane Garcia, a 10-year-old girl with an active imagination."

From Emmy Award winner J.J. Johnson, Sinking Ship Entertainment, and the Jane Goodall Institute, Jane is a live action/CGI blended series created and executive produced by company partner J.J. Johnson.

"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."

Jane joins other Apple TV+ shows that are designed with kids in mind, including Stillwater, The Snoopy Show, Doug Unlugs, and more.

Apple TV+ is available as a monthly $4.99 subscription or as part of the Apple One subscription bundle.
