As you all know Disney Channel is a big favourite in our household, and the girls are very excited because today sees the launch of a brand new show, Jessie, starring Bailey from Suite Life on Deck.
Disney Channel’s brand new comedy series Jessie, is set to take the UK by storm, following its huge ratings success in the U.S. with 4.6 million viewers tuning in to make it the most-watched Friday series premiere in three years.* The series stars 18-year-old teen starlet Debby Ryan of The Suite Life on Deck and 16 Wishes fame, and will premiere on the channel at 5:35pm this Friday 17th February 2012.
The story follows the journey of an idealistic teen, played by Ryan, from rural Texas who moves to New York City and becomes a nanny for a high-profile couple Morgan and Christina and their four children, Emma, Ravi, Luke and Zuri. Starring alongside her is a talented cast including Tony Award-nominated Kevin Chamberlin (Broadway’s The Addams Family) as Bertram; Peyton List (27 Dresses, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules) as Emma; Karan Brar (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules) as Ravi; Cameron Boyce (Grown Ups) as Luke; and Skai Jackson (Royal Pains) as Zuri.
With a whole new world of opportunities within her reach, Jessie begins to navigate young adulthood and life in the big city. She surprises herself with how much she comes to rely on the support and advice of the kids in her care. Also helping to keep her moral compass in check are Bertram, the family’s butler, and Tony, the building’s 20-year-old doorman.
I used to be a nanny myself, before having my own children, but I am sure she will get up to a lot more exciting adventures than I did, the only similarity may be that a romance may blossom with the doorman, just as the romance blossomed with Asa and I whilst I was nannying!!
Take a look and let me know what you think, will it be the next big show on Disnay Channel ?
