Storyline

The series follows Jessie Prescott, 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, Luke, Ravi and Zuri; 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, the family's sarcastic butler, and Tony, the building's 20-year-old doorman. Written by Anonymous

Bailey Comes To New York
4 November 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When the Disney Studios decided to give Debby Ryan a lead in her own TV show after The Suite Life On Deck was canceled, why didn't they just make it official and have her continue with her character of Bailey Pickett now graduating high school at sea and coming to New York to seek fame and fortune? To all intents and purposes her title character of Jessie is just Bailey with a different name. In The Suite Life On Deck she was from a place called Kettlekorn and who wouldn't want to leave there after an around the world school?

In any event Ryan is kind of adopted by the youngest of four adopted siblings who are a family rough on nannies. And when Ryan finds out that the family are the adopted kids of an Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt show business power couple, she thinks she's got it made.

The kids are four different types and I don't mean just racial and ethnic backgrounds. That in and of itself will guarantee the writers a whole lot of different story lines for various episodes.

Young Chris Galya plays a young doorman in the building who will eventually be a love interest for Ryan. He plays him in the Matt LeBlanc tradition, drop dead gorgeous hunk who's real nice, but a bit dumb. He should be the Magic Kingdom's latest idol from out of the Jessie series.

In any event Jessie is a pleasant and innocuous enough comedy and hopefully Debby Ryan's considerable singing talents will be showcased.
