Molly is an optimistic tween, who lives to make the world a better place. Scratch is a grumpy ghost, whose joy comes from spreading misery. When one of Scratch's spells backfires, he finds himself forever cursed in Molly's presence.
News of the series was first announced on June 23, 2019, by senior vice president Animation Strategy, Meredith Roberts Quill. Emmy® Award-winning duo Bill Motz and Bob Roth will serve as executive producers with Emmy Award-winner Steve Loter.
Disney Television Animation studio has added to its roster of world-class talent, securing overall development deals with top animation creators and artists including Bruce Smith, Jeff Howard, Kate Kondell, Stevie Wermers, Kevin Deters, Howy Parkins, Amy Higgins, Devin Bunje, Nick Stanton, Noah Z.

Along with the numerous projects in development from this group of incredibly talented creators, we are poised to lead Disney's TV animation legacy of inspired storytelling and beloved characters into the future."
On September 24, 2020, Bill Motz revealed that the series, originally titled The Curse of Molly McGee, was renamed to The Ghost and Molly McGee, saying that the series is about the relationship between Molly and Scratch, and thought that the new title would reflect that better.
The series was originally intended for a 2020 release, but ended up being delayed until 2021 likely as a result of COVID-19.
A preview of the series aired on May 1, 2021, during the "Halfway to Halloween" event on Disney Channel.
