Fifteen year old Keke Palmer makes her television series debut as teenager-turned-fashion executive True Jackson in the network’s new, original comedy series, True Jackson.
The series which airs on Saturdays at 8:30 pm centers on 15-year-old True Jackson (Palmer) who is tapped to head the youth division of Mad Style, a major fashion label.
True soon learns that navigating the grown-up corporate world has the same highs and lows as high school, complete with cliques, mean girls and crushes–but with cool perks like designing the international icons and casting super cute models.
Keke Palmer also co-wrote and sings the pop-rock series theme song. Award-winning, broadcast veteran Andy Gordon (NewsRadio, Just Shoot Me!, Mad About You) is creator and Executive Producer of the series.
The first season will follow True as she navigates work life, social life, and love life adventures around the Mad Style offices – this includes cameos by pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler and Weeds actress Julie Bowen. True battles real life obstacles like competitive co-workers, and corporate politics, but builds new friendships, and finds her niche as a fashion leader.
Upcoming episodes include True playing matchmaker, mistakenly lending out a one-of-a-kind prototype dress, babysitting high maintenance models, designing clothes, and being faced with firing her best friend, Lulu.
