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.

User Reviews

very good series for the whole family!

I've loved Jett Jackson ever since it came out.It's very funny,and very action-like,and still a drama,at the same time.Despite the fact that the majority of teenagers,aren't famous actors,it's very much like your average teenager.This is one of disney's best,in the midst of shows like even stevens and lizzie mcguire...Jett Jackson actually holds an interesting plot and a great assembled cast.2 thumbs up for this disney series.
