Lucy’s School Is a Tribute to Teachers

Apple TV+ today revealed the trailer for Lucy’s School, a new original special celebrating educators. Based on the classic Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz, the special premieres on Friday, August 12.

The Peanuts gang are anxious about starting at a new school in the fall, inspiring Lucy to start her own school instead, but teaching isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Lucy's School Is a Tribute to Teachers

Lucy’s School is a love letter to teachers, and an appreciation of the impact a teacher can have on a child. It explores the fear of change, and shows how Lucy, supported by her friends, faces and overcomes her own fears.

Produced for Apple TV+ by Peanuts and WildBrain, the special is directed by Raymond S. Persi (It’s the Small Things, Charlie Brown), written by Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, and Cornelius Uliano.

All three executive produce alongside Paige Braddock, Josh Scherba, Stephanie Betts, Amir Nasrabadi and Anne Loi. The special is produced by James Brown and Timothy Jason Smith.
