ADVISORY/Lee Thompson Young, Star of Disney Channel's The Famous Jett Jackson: The Movie, to Tape Episode of Disney Channel Original Series The Jersey.
ADVISORY...for Thursday (April 5)
Thursday, April 5 At Blackwelder Studios
WHO: Lee Thompson Young, star of DISNEY CHANNEL's original series The Famous Jett Jackson and the upcoming film The Famous Jett Jackson: The Movie. In The Famous Jett Jackson, Lee plays Jett Jackson, a kid actor who doubles as the daring action star Silverstone in his own series. The twist is that Jett has his show moved from Hollywood to Wilsted, North Carolina so he can go to school, hang out with his friends, and live with his family -- just like a regular kid. Lee began acting at the age of 10 after taking a part in a local theatre production A Night of Stars and Dreams, in which he played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. From there Lee went on to perform his own one-man show, Young Treasures. The profits from the show allowed Lee to travel to New York with his mother to pursue acting professionally. Subsequently, Lee appeared in commercials for McDonald's and Robitussin, starred in the DISNEY CHANNEL original movie Johnny Tsunami, had roles in the television series New York Undercover, the feature film Peroxide Passion, and was cast in a production of Anna Devere Smith's play House Arrest. Most recently, Lee was also featured in Teen Magazine's "Who's That Babe?" column. WHAT: Guest stars in an episode of DISNEY CHANNEL's original sports series The Jersey. The episode featuring Lee Thompson Young tapes Thursday at Blackwelder Studios. In "Origins," Hilary and Willa are doggedly determined to track down Lee Thompson Young, star of Disney Channel's The Famous Jett Jackson and upcoming film The Famous Jett Jackson: The Movie. These two seasoned reporters will stop at nothing to interview Lee for their `Zine -- they stake out a restaurant and even bluff their way onto the tennis courts of a country club in search of him. The elusive Lee Thompson Young finally turns up on Hilary's doorstep to return the jersey, which the MNFC, Hilary and Willa thought had been lost forever to Blackstone and his evil minions. In DISNEY CHANNEL's original sports series, The Jersey, a tired old football jersey is passed down to Nick from his deceased grandfather, but this is much more than your ordinary jersey -- it's a magical portal into the world of sports. Astonishingly, its wearer is transported off the couch, onto the field and into the cleats, shoes or skates of sports heroes. WHEN: Thursday, April 5, 11 AM WHERE: Blackwelder Studios 5900 Blackwelder St. Culver City, CA 90232
You must RSVP to Christel Wheeler at 818/569-7884 or Jori Petersen at 818/955-6742 to obtain credentials to the taping.
