The New Ghostwriter Mysteries is a CBS television show that aired in 1997 in television. It was loosely based on an earlier series on PBS (in the United States) called Ghostwriter. The New Ghostwriter Mysteries was canceled after a year, due to low Nielsen ratings.

The show featured a new team of three kids: Camella Gorik (Charlotte Sullivan), Emilie Robeson (Erica Luttrell), and Henry 'Strick' Strickland (Kristian Ayre). Ghostwriter only had two colors, which were silver and gold. The show was filmed in Canada, and aired from September through December 1997.


Three years after the original "Ghostwriter," a new team of teenage detectives (Camela Gorrick, Emilie Robeson, and "Strick" Strickland) team with the specter who can only communicate through written language. Together, they tackle crimes around the Fort Greene area of New York City.
