Featuring interviews with Jean Schulz, the widow of Charles Schulz, along with Drew Barrymore, Al Roker, Kevin Smith, Billie Jean King, Paul Feig, Ira Glass, Noah Schnapp, Miya Cech, Keith L. Williams, Chip Kidd, Lynn Johnston, Robb Armstrong and more, the documentary interweaves a new animated story that follows Charlie Brown on a quest to discover himself.

The documentary is executive produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Sara Bernstein and Justin Wilkes of Imagine, Josh Scherba, Anne Loi and Stephanie Betts of WildBrain, Craig Schulz and Paige Braddock of Peanuts, and Michael Bonfiglio, who also writes and directs. Imagine Documentaries' Meredith Kaulfers serves as co-executive producer and Marcella Steingart serves as producer and writer. Original music is composed by Jeff Morrow, composer of the new series The Snoopy Show, Snoopy in Space and Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10. Debuting globally on Apple TV+, Who Are You, Charlie Brown? will join other Peanuts titles, including The Snoopy Show, classic Peanuts specials, the Daytime Emmy-nominated series Snoopy in Space, and the Daytime Emmy Award-winning Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10, also from Imagine Documentaries.
