"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. The series premieres FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

In the premiere episode, Jessie accepts a job as a nanny and moves in with the Ross Family - high-flying couple Christina, a former supermodel turned business mogul, and Morgan, a famous movie director, their four kids and beloved 7-foot Asian Water Monitor Lizard. While Jessie's new big city life is full of opportunity and excitement, she quickly discovers how much she relies on the support and advice of the kids in her care -- 13-year-old Emma, the biological child of the bunch, 10-year-old Indian adoptee Ravi, 12-year-old American adoptee Luke and seven-year-old African adoptee Zuri. Also helping Jessie navigate her new big city adventure is Bertram, the family's beloved yet frosty butler, and Tony, the building's 20-year-old doorman.
