Created and produced by Jeremy Zag, the supernatural series for kids ages 6-10 follows three junior high school students who form a secret team to defend their city from the ghastly ghouls haunting it.  

Disney Channels has licensed 52 x 11-minute episodes of “Ghostforce” for North America, Japan and India, adding to the existing deals with Disney Channel EMEA, Russia and the Middle East. Disney Channel has already debuted the series in Germany and Israel, with additional territories rolling out this fall. 

“Disney is the ideal home for our newest series, ‘Ghostforce,’ that will be enjoyed by boys and girls alike,” says Jeremy Zag, founder and chief executive officer, ZAG. “We are so grateful to all of our partners – TF1, Disney Channel and Playmates – for helping us bring this original new series to life. ‘Ghostforce’ had a spectacular debut on TF1 in France with an audience share of over 35% and is already resonating with kids as we are seeing tons of activity increasing across social media channels.”
