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.

Jett Jackson: [opening credits] Silverstone, the ultimate action hero, top agent for a secret organization saving the world one mission at a time... at least that's who I play on TV. In real life, I'm Jett Jackson. Being a TV star is cool, but being a regular kid is even better so I had the show moved back to my hometown, Wilsted, North Carolina. Now, I can hang with my friends which is great. And the best part of all, I get to spend a lot more time with my family. Hey, I'm just trying to live my life as a ...

A great show!
28 May 2003 | by smfrieSee all my reviews

I thought this show was cute. It's about a young actor who wants to go back to his hometown to be a normal kid. Jett plays Silverstone in a action TV show. You get to see how Jett juggles work and school and trying to be 'normal'. In one episode a girl becomes obsessed with him and does anything to win a contest, 'Spend the day with Jett'. Jett's parents aren't together anymore and they show viewers that they can get along and still be a family. It is a good show to watch and it's funny.
