Blending spooky fun, heartfelt storytelling and Broadway-caliber music, the series is inspired by Disney Publishing's popular children's book series "Vampirina Ballerina," written by Anne Marie Pace and illustrated by Leuyen Pham, and is co-executive produced by Chelsea Beyl and Norton Virgien (both of Disney Junior's Peabody Award-winning "Doc McStuffins"). Broadway composers Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond ("The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes") are the series' songwriters and Layla Minoui ("Castle") is composer. The series is produced by Academy Award-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Junior.
