A new supernatural series for kids and families is coming to Apple TV+. The streaming service dropped a trailer for Surfside Girls Monday showing best surfer-girl friends solving supernatural mysteries in their sleepy California beach town.

And did we mention: pirates! They fit into this. There’s some sort of cave-portal and a pirate ship and a friendly boy who is, somehow, a pirate, apparently.

The adventurous mystery series debuts August 19 on Apple TV+.

Apple TV+ debuts trailer for Surfside Girls, based on a bestselling graphic novel

WGA Award winner and Daytime Emmy Award nominee May Chan co-developed the mystery series from a bestselling graphic novel series of the same name by author Kim Dwinell, Apple TV+ said.

The live-action series follows best friends Sam and Jade as they solve supernatural mysteries in their sleepy California beach town.

The besties must combine their polar-opposite strengths — imagination and logic — in order to figure out the bizarre goings-on just beneath the surface of their town.

The feel-good series stars Miya Cech (Marvelous and the Black Hole, Rim of the World), YaYa Gosselin (We Can be Heroes, FBI: Most Wanted) and Spencer Hermes-Rebello (Troppo).

Showrunner Chan (American Girl: Corinne Tan, The Astronauts) developed the series with Alex Diaz and Julie Sagalowsky Diaz (The Shannara Chronicles, What’s Up Warthogs!).

The series is produced by Endeavor Content and IDW Entertainment. Paul Stupin (Switched at Birth, Dawson’s Creek) serves as executive producer. Diaz and Sagalowsky Diaz co-developed and serve as writers and executive producers. America Young (Roswell, New Mexico, Legacies) directs and executive produces the first two episodes.

Lydia Antonini (Locke & Key, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, October Faction) also serves as executive producer. Paul Davidson and Jeff Brustrom serve as executive producers on behalf of IDW.

Apple TV+ is available by subscription for $4.99 per month with a one-week free trial.
