Julia Stiles made her acting debut in this series, playing the bratty and rebellious punk Erica.
Samuel L. Jackson made a few cameo appearances in as few of the earlier episodes, playing the part of Jamal's father.
In the first mystery of the series (Episode 5), the character Alex Fernandez (David Lopez) 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.
