In the first mystery of the series (episode 5), Alex speculated that there would eventually be a big mystery as to who Ghostwriter really was. The series ended in 1995 due to lack of funding, and the speculated episode never went into production.
The series had a total of 18 mysteries, each with 4 or 5 episodes devoted to each case. Julia Stiles made her acting debut in this series, playing the bratty and rebellious punk Erica. Samuel L. Jackson made cameo appearances in a few of the earlier episodes, playing the part of Jamal's father.
