Debby Ryan leads the talented Jessie cast as the titular protagonist, an idealistic girl who moves from Texas to New York to pursue her dreams. However, to make ends meet, she becomes a nanny for a wealthy family’s four boisterous children. The life-changing experience puts her into several misadventures of her own. Jessie made use of quintessential Disney sitcom tropes, thanks to showrunner Pamela Eells O’Connell who previously wrote and executive produced The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and its spin-off The Suite Life on Deck. Thanks to its cast of then-emerging stars, Jessie stood out on its own as one of the best Disney Channel TV shows.
