News/Assignment & Entertainment Editors

ADVISORY...for Thursday (April 5)

--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)

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.
