The City of Ghosts documentary-style series featuring animated characters with live-action backgrounds follows Zelda, a Los Angeles kid who, with many new friends, forms The Ghost Club. It has a personal touch of Ito, who seems to share her unique background as a yonsei (a Japanese American 4th generation) living in various ethnic communities around L.A.

Ito, a native of Los Angeles, an Emmy-winning producer and author of the animated series Adventure Time on  Cartoon Network and creator of the short Welcome to My Life Cartoon Network, will executively produce and act as showrunner.

In an interview, Elizabeth said, "I created City of Ghosts for my kids and me to watch together." She added, "My goal was to create a quieter, gentler show that could also teach them about the different people and communities that make Los Angeles special. I also hope kids, especially mine, see themselves represented as the smart, funny, and intuitive people that I see them as."

Ito further said, "I think as you have younger creatives, there tends to be more of an openness to show who they are." She is also an animation veteran and writer.

According to Netflix, learn about the rich history of their city through encounters with friendly neighborhood ghosts. The Ghost Club members help others learn to live in the present by communicating with the spirits of the past in each episode, which is based on and voiced by actual residents from different neighborhoods.
