Jessie is an American sitcom which premiered on September 30, 2011 on Disney Channel.[1][2] The series was created and executive produced by Pamela Eells O'Connell and stars Debby Ryan as Jessie Prescott, a small town Texas girl who moves to New York City and becomes a nanny to a high profile couple's four children played by Peyton List, Cameron Boyce, Karan Brar, and Skai Jackson.

On March 28, 2013, the series was renewed for a third season, with production resuming in July 2013.[3] Season 3 premiered on October 5, 2013. On April 16, 2014, according to ABC News, Jessie will get engaged in a four-episode arc that will conclude the season this fall, marking the first time a Disney Channel lead character has gotten engaged.[4]

The show was renewed for a fourth season on May 20, 2014.[5] In October 2014, Peyton List stated that the fourth season would be the final one.[6]

Plot[edit]

The series follows Jessie Prescott (Debby Ryan), a young woman from a small town with big dreams who, rebelling against her strict father, decides to leave the military base in Texas where she grew up and moves to New York City. She accepts a job as a nanny and moves into a multi-million dollar penthouse on the Upper West Side with the wealthy Ross family which includes: jet-setting parents, Morgan and Christina; and their four rambunctious children: Emma Ross (Peyton List), Luke Ross (Cameron Boyce), Ravi Ross (Karan Brar) and Zuri Ross (Skai Jackson); along with the family pet (and Ravi's companion) Mr. (later Mrs.) Kipling, a 7 ft (2 m) Asian water monitor, that was later revealed to be a female. With a whole new world of experiences open to her, Jessie embarks on new adventures in the big city as she grows to rely on the love and support of the children in her care. Assisting her are Bertram (Kevin Chamberlin), the family's lazy and sarcastic butler, and Tony (Chris Galya), the building's 20-year-old doorman.[7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

The series was created by Pamela Eells O'Connell who had had previous experience with the "nanny" sitcom formula, starting her career as a writer on the series Charles in Charge and serving as co-executive producer on The Nanny, before working with Debby Ryan on The Suite Life on Deck.[14][15][16] O'Connell is said to have developed Jessie specifically to showcase Ryan's talent.[17] In an interview with the Star-Telegram, Ryan explained how the concept originated – "(O'Connell) and I were throwing ideas back and forth when The Suite Life was coming to an end, and she came up with this. I was absolutely captivated. Then Disney looked at the script and the show runner (O'Connell) and myself and they were like: 'Awesome. We like it. You're on in the fall'".[17] In interviews with Variety, Disney CEO, Gary Marsh spoke of working with Ryan again, – "It's been thrilling to watch Debby grow from an unknown actress to one of our top stars. Debby is a talented young actress who connects to a wide fanbase because she's genuine, relatable and aspirational all at once. Our viewers have followed her from The Suite Life on Deck to 16 Wishes, and we're pleased to be working with her again."[18][19] Jessie is set to be the first main character to be engaged and married in Disney Channel. There will be a four-part episode of the engagement.[20]

With Ryan signed on, Disney Channel began the search to cast the Ross family in May 2011.[21] Before casting was finalized, there were numerous differences in the original concept for several of the characters.[21] The role of mother to the Ross children was originally a photographer named "Pandora", the role of eldest daughter, Emma was originally named "Anabel", the role of Luke was originally a boy adopted from Korea named "Hiro" and the role of Ravi was originally a boy adopted from South America named "Javier" who had a pet capybara instead of a monitor lizard.[7][21][22] Some have speculated that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as a prominent celebrity couple with a multi-cultural adoptive family, may have been one possible inspiration for the series.[23] In an interview with the Boston Herald, O'Connell described her inspiration, saying – "I thought the celebrity parents and gorgeous penthouse would be glamorous, and a nice contrast to Jessie's more modest Texas roots. That fish out of water element makes for good stories, and I was inspired by many families who have adopted children of different ethnicities."[23]

Filming[edit]

After casting was finalized and changes were made to several of the characters to suit the actors chosen, the series skipped the pilot phase and was put directly into production.[22][24] Filming began in June 2011 on Stage 3/8 at Hollywood Center Studios which, prior to start of production, served as the soundstage where the Disney Channel series, Wizards of Waverly Place was taped.[8][10] Thirteen episodes were originally ordered for the first season, but while the show's first season was in production, Disney Channel ordered an additional seven episodes bringing the total number of episodes for the first season to twenty.[19] When asked about the atmosphere on set during an interview with MSN TV, Ryan described her relationship with the young cast – "I definitely feel like a nanny! They are smart kids, but they're real kids. They like to have fun. My policy is: We can play hard, as long as we work hard, and because we work hard, we need to play hard."[25]

Cast and characters[edit]

Main characters[edit]

Jessie Mrs. Kipling Zuri Luke Ravi Emma Bertram
Main characters of Jessie (Use cursor to identify)
  • Jessie Prescott[26] (Debby Ryan), an idealistic and resourceful girl from the military base of Fort Hood, Texas. As a recent high school graduate rebelling against her strict father who wanted her to join the Army, Jessie moved to New York City to realize her dreams of stardom, but with an unexpected turn of events ends up becoming a nanny to the four Ross children. Even though at times both Jessie and the Ross kids can annoy each other, they all deeply care for one another and Jessie is even shown to be sometimes overprotective. Later her last name is revealed to be Prescott. In the episode "Make New Friends But Hide the Old", she reveals that she is an only child of her family.[9][10][11][12][13][27] Jessie also has a complicated love life. Her mother has never been seen, but is mentioned in "G.I. Jessie".
  • Emma Ross (Peyton List), a diva, somewhat ditzy, cynical girl, eager to reorder the world to the way she sees it. Emma is the oldest child of the Ross family, and Morgan and Christina's only biological child. Emma spends most of her time with Zuri, and doesn't appreciate her brother Luke.[9][10][11][12][28] In Season 2, she acts as Kitty Couture. She is into fashion and starts to get along with Luke more. She and Ravi also spend time together as brother-and-sister.
  • Luke Ross (Cameron Boyce), a clever and crafty boy who was born in Detroit and has a passion for video games, break-dancing, and causing a bit of mischief around the penthouse while also being a little sarcastic at times. He considers himself a "ladies' man", having taken a liking to Jessie in particular. Luke even tried to date her in the first few episodes. Luke is the second-oldest of the Ross children. In the episode: "The Kid Whisperer", his full name is revealed to be Lucas. He spends a lot of time with his brother, Ravi, and has a close bond with Bertram as well.
  • Ravi Ross (Karan Brar), a gentle boy, born and raised for ten and a half years in West Bengal, India and the newest addition of the Ross family. He is imbued with the culture of his beloved homeland, but is thrilled with his new life in America. He is the third-oldest of the Ross children. He seems to spend most of his time with Luke, but appreciates his sisters all the same. He also spends time with his lizard Mr. Kipling (later revealed as Mrs. Kipling) which he brought from India.
  • Zuri Ross (Skai Jackson), a sassy and talkative girl who was brought to NYC from her birth country, Uganda, Africa.[29] She is highly creative with a penchant for rainbows, unicorns, mermaids, and country music, (especially Rascal Flatts, Reba, and Carrie Underwood) and has many stuffed animals and imaginary friends. She is currently the youngest of the Ross children. She has close bonds with Jessie, Emma and her imaginary friends. Later Zuri lets go of all of her imaginary friends, hinting that she's becoming a mature adolescent.
  • Bertram (Kevin Chamberlin), the Ross family's eccentric butler. He is grouchy and often very lazy though begrudgingly helps Jessie navigate her job as nanny to the four Ross children. In "The Kid Whisperer", his hoarding obsession is revealed. In "Tempest in a Teacup", it is revealed that Bertram is claustrophobic. He also has a passion for opera music. Even though the Ross kids as well as Jessie will get on his nerves sometimes (he is the primary target of many of Luke/Zuri's pranks), he deeply cares about them. In the episode "One-Day Wonders", it is revealed that his last name is Winkle.[9][10][11][12][30]

Recurring characters[edit]

  • Tony (Chris Galya) is the doorman in the building where the Ross family lives who has strong feelings for Jessie (and eventually becomes her on-and-off boyfriend) and helps her navigate her adventures in the big city. He also starts to date Jessie in "The Princess and the Pea Brain". They later break up in "Break Up and Shape Up". As mentioned in "The Trouble With Tessie", his last name is Chiccolini. His parents own a restaurant in Little Italy. A recurring joke on the show has Jessie asking the kids where they found something strange (but needed), and the response is invariably "Tony knows a guy." [9][10][11][12]
  • Mrs. Kipling, formerly Mr. Kipling[note 1] (Frank) is the Ross family's house pet, a seven-foot Asian water monitor lizard, that Ravi brought from India when he came to America. In "The Secret Life of Mr. Kipling", it is revealed that he is actually a female monitor lizard and has laid twelve eggs.[9][10][11][12][32] The names of Mrs. Kipling's twelve babies are Mowgli, Sanjay, Gupta, Slumdog, Kumar, Ravi Jr., Scooter, Rikki, Tikki, Tavi, Mohandas, and Padma.
  • Rhoda Chesterfield (Carolyn Hennesy) is the cold-hearted head of the city condominium board in the building where the Ross family lives. Her first spat with Jessie and the Ross clan involved Mrs. Kipling tearing her clothes up in the elevator. She dislikes anyone who is not rich, who is under 20, or who is less self-absorbed than herself. This sadly doesn't stop her from repeatedly hitting on Bertram, lavishing too much affection on her chihuahua, Zeus, or constantly calling Jessie by the wrong name (Bessie, Tessie, Nessie, etc.). In "101 Lizards", it is revealed that she has a daughter, Cassandra (whom she mistreats and refers to as her assistant), and owns a lizard sanctuary. It is also revealed in "Between the Swoon and New York City" that she has a son named Brooks. It is also revealed that she has been married more than once. She had no romantic feelings toward her first husband and married him for his money. Despite her rivalry against the Ross family, it is shown in "101 Lizards" she seems to have a soft spot for Emma.
  • Christina Ross (Christina Moore), mother to the four Ross children and a former supermodel turned business magnate.[9][10][11][12]
  • Morgan Ross (Charles Esten) is the father to the four Ross children and a famous movie director. The pilot episode reveals he is friends with George Lucas. In "Gotcha Day", he thought that a chili slip 'n slide was a great idea.[9][10][11][12]
  • Stuart Wooten (J.J. Totah), is a quickwitted yet lovestruck kid. He has a huge crush on Zuri and is a good friend to the Ross brothers. He appears in "Trouble with Tessie", "Quitting Cold Koala", and "Panic Attack Room". In the end of "Quitting Cold Koala", he and Zuri go on a romantic picnic, implying that they have a relationship. Stuart is usually nice and kind, but he's able to show his rudeness whenever he wants to, like Zuri does, as seen in later episodes. In "Quitting Cold Koala", he attempts to make Zuri jealous and hint that she likes him back. In "Panic Attack Room", he addresses the Ross brothers as neanderthals, annoyed that they interrupted his board game date with Luke & Ravi's younger sister (Zuri). He also has an obsession with different pants for different occasions, such as "picnic pants" and "panic room pants". Stuart makes his return in "Acting With The Frenemy", where he is jealous when Zuri has a crush on Shane, Luke's new member and they have a dance off for Zuri. He stands up for her, creating romance between the two. He appears again in "Where's Zuri?" after undergoing transformation from Stewart to Stu Dog by his new "Manny". Zuri falls for him in this episode.
  • Officer Petey (Joey Richter) is a police officer who is strangely obsessed with the performing arts. He is not a very good police officer. In fact, he wanted to be an actor. The episode "Pain In The Rear Window" reveals that he has very little physical strength and cannot tolerate the sight of bruised skin, let alone blood. It is also reveals that he did not go to an academy [33]
  • Rosie (Kelly Gould) is Emma's best friend who lives in a crime-ridden area of the city, but is actually a nice girl. She used Emma to lampoon a nasty girl in "Make News Friends But Hide the Old" but since Emma and Rosie both hate the bully, they become friends by the end of the episode. She returns again in "Trashin Fashion" as Emma's camera girl for their blog. Their friendship is threatened by Bryn in "Kids Don't Wanna Be Shunned".
  • Nanny Agatha (Jennifer Veal) is an unattractive, arrogant British nanny who frequently locks horns with Jessie and the Ross children. During their first meeting, she attempts to ban Zuri and Jessie from Central Park. Zuri and Jessie ignore Agatha and keep coming back, so Agatha starts posting mean things saying that Jessie is a bad nanny on her website "Toddler Tattler". Zuri, Jessie, and Christina stand up to Agatha and Agatha shuts down her website. Agatha has a twin sister, Angela (Jennifer Veal), revealed in "Evil Times Two", who is even more dishonest (but much prettier) and tries to steal Jessie's job, but the kids and Jessie stand up to her and she goes back to England. So far, this is the only time Agatha, who despises the long-favored Angela, was on the same side as Jessie. Officer Petey met Agatha (dressed as a clown) at a fair in the park, and thought she was cute until he learned her mole and snaggle-tooth were not part of her costume.
  • Connie Tompson (Sierra McCormick), also known as "Creepy Connie", is an insane girl with an obsessive crush on Luke. He describes her as "Creepy with a capital K". She appeared in the episode "Creepy Connie Comes a Callin'", when she tutors Luke, but also tries to flirt with him. Then, she appeared in the episode "Creepy Connie's Curtain Call", when she auditions for the school play written by Jessie. She causes "accidents" to the female lead and understudies, so she can get the lead role and kiss Luke. Also in "Creepy Connie 3 : The Creepening", where she hires an actress, Mackenzie (G. Hannelius), to pretend to be obsessed with Luke so he'll like Connie. In the episode "Creepy Connie's Curtain Call", she starts dating Ravi, but pretends to not remember him in "Creepy Connie 3: The Creepening". She is also an avid fan of Harry Potter.
  • Boomer (Lombardo Boyar) is Emma's new boss and Creepy Connie's uncle.
  • Brooks Wentworth (Pierson Fode) is Jessie's new boyfriend who later becomes Jessie's fiancé. He got a job in Africa and asked Jessie to get married as soon as possible. She decides to go with him, but the kids find out and are extremely upset. On their wedding day Jessie realizes she is not ready to be married and breaks up with Brooks. Jessie stays in New York and Brooks leaves for Africa.
