I've heard of Tom Swift. He was kinda like a kid Thomas Edison; he had a lot of cool ideas, & a large team of developers which could make them reality. Fun, but I don't like the sound of the series.
A TV show about kids remaking the Goonies... How long is the Goonies? 2 Hours? That would give them About 60 scenes, assuming the average scene is 2 minutes long. Make 60 episodes about the weird adventures the kids have trying to create each scene. Pad it with some over arching plot about the lead actress's back ground, & there ya go.
