The series, whose pilot episode is written by the Wibberleys and will be directed by Mira Nair, centers on Jess (Alexis), a Latina whose bright, resourceful mind loves a good mystery, and she has a natural knack for solving riddles.

The National treasure The series may have said goodbye to Nicolas Cage, but the movie franchise didn’t. A third National treasure is still in development.
Collider spoke with National treasure producer Jerry Bruckheimer who noted:
“We are certainly working on a [National Treasure] for streaming and we’re working on one for the big screen. Hopefully they both reunite and we bring you another national treasure, but they’re both very active… The one from Disney + is a much younger cast. It’s the same concept but a young cast. The one for the theater would be the same cast.
