Storyline

Jett is the star of a popular action show called "Silverstone" but when he decides he wants to spend more time with his sheriff father, wise grandmother, and best friend J.B., the entire show relocates from L.A. to his North Carolina hometown. However, a normal life is far from what Jett gets. J.B. has to deal with the fame surrounding his buddy and screaming fans chase Jett into the girl's restroom he meets Kayla, an artist/farmer's daughter who is not impressed by his fame. With J.B., Kayla and his friends from the set (such as the special effect guru Cubby and the show's costar Riley), the teen learns to juggle between being the action hero Silverstone and just regular Jett Jackson.

Great show for the whole family
15 June 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the one show on tv that my whole family will watch together. Jett Jackson (played superbly by Lee Thompson Young) struggles to fit in both life as a normal kid in his North Carolina hometown and his job playing super spy Silverstone on a children's television program. Jett has a good relationship with his parents and adults will like that the grown-ups are portrayed as caring and wise (especially the character of his great grandmother, Miz Coretta, played with quiet dignity by Montrose Hagins) instead of merely stupid as most television parents are. Likewise, Jett and his friends work things out together. This is especially noticeable in the episode "Day Trip" where Jett, JB, Kayla, and Riley go looking for gold and Jett is bitten by a rattlesnake. The Silverstone scenes are also action packed and fun. Nigel Shawn Williams is great as Silverstone's mentor Artemus, and Lindy Booth's feisty Hawk (she also doubles as Riley) shows that she's one Canadian import to keep an eye on. Highly recommended!
