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.

Commenting on "The Famous Jett Jackson"
26 May 2001 | by (Rhode Island, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Famous Jett Jackson" is a very good TV show for kids and teenagers. I like it very much. It is basically about a teenaged boy named Jett who stars in his own television show, but lives in a small South Carolina town. He has two best friends, JB and Kayla, who help him get through different problems. He lives with his Nana and father who are humorous, but very ideal characters. As a star, Jett must deal with being a rich, famous star in a small, simple town. Guest stars include Hayden Christensen and Britney Spears. "The Famous Jett Jackson" is a great television series, and if you like it, I'd also recommend other Disney shows such as "Lizzie McGuire" and "Even Stevens."
