Apple has ordered Jane,' an environmentally-focused children's show for Apple TV+, executive produced by the Jane Goodall Institute.

Announced by Apple on Monday, "Jane" will follow ten-year-old Jane Garcia, a girl said to have an active imagination. By pretending, Jane and her teammates will work to protect an endangered animal in each episode.

Jane is driven to protect because of the words of her idol, Jane Goodall: "Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, can they be saved."

The show will take the form of a live-action series with blended CGI elements.

Bought from Sinking Ship Entertainment, the program was created and is executive produced by Emmy Award winner J.J. Johnson. The Jane Goodall Institute is also onboard as executive producers.

It is unclear when the show will air, but it will be arriving on Apple TV+.

"Jane" is the latest children's programming announcement for Apple's streaming video service. Other shows for kids include "Stillwater," "Ghostwriter," "Helpsters," and "The Snoopy Show."
