Show Description

A small-town military brat who wants to try her luck in the big city is the premise behind Jessie, a Disney Channel Original Series which stars Debby Ryan as the title character.

18-year old Jessie, fed up with her father's domineering ways, leaves her native Texas to take a job as a nanny in New York City. The differences in culture are quite a shock, with suddenly four hyperkinetic children, not to mention a 7-foot long lizard, to care for. The change in scenery and atmosphere seem to agree with her however, and she looks forward to what each day may bring. The "fish-out-of-water" approach works well, and Ms. Ryan portrays her character flawlessly.

Jessie's creator, Pamela Eells O'Connell, has made a career working within the "nanny" premise, having previously worked as a writer on "Charles in Charge," and serving as a producer on "The Nanny." She also had worked with Ms. Ryan on another Disney Channel production, "Suite Life On Deck," and developed Jessie with the young actress specifically in mind.
