Show Description

At times dealing with topics not generally touched upon by typical Disney productions such as race relations, bulimia, censorship and the paranormal, The Famous Jett Jackson, a Disney Channel Original Series jointly produced in both the U.S. and Canada, was a successful and critically acclaimed series that ran from 1998-2001.

A typical teenager who happens to play a secret agent on a fictional "show-within-a-show" called Silverstone, Jett Jackson, portrayed by Lee Thompson Young, misses his family and friends while living in Los Angeles where "Silverstone" is filmed, and convinces the fictional program's producers to relocate to North Carolina, where he is reunited with his father, a local sheriff. The new surroundings serve to provide Jett with a more "normal" existence, with the contrasts between L.A. and rural South often leading to humorous situations.

The Famous Jett Jackson occasionally featured notable guest stars such as Destiny's Child, Britney Spears, Hayden Christensen and the late legendary singer-actress Eartha Kitt.
