"JESSIE," A COMEDY ABOUT A SMALL TOWN GIRL TURNED NEW YORK CITY NANNY, PREMIERES FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Fan-Favorite Debby Ryan Leads Talented Ensemble Cast

Disney Channel fan-favorite Debby Ryan ("The Suite Life on Deck," "16 Wishes") stars in "Jessie," a new comedy series about a small-town girl who leaves behind her Texas roots and finds a job in the Big Apple as nanny to a high-flying couple's four precocious kids.
