Big congrats to Debby Ryan!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 17-year-old has landed herself a new gig as the lead in her own Disney Channel series. Debby will star in a new show called "Jessie."
The show follows a starry-eyed teen from rural Texas who moves to New York City to explore life outside her small town. She soon finds herself living in a multi-million dollar penthouse as nanny to a high-profile couple's four children, one of their imaginary friends and a pet capybara. As she navigates life in the big city, Jessie finds allies in the frosty butler, Bertram, and the 20-year-old doorman, Tony.
Debby has been hinting at the big announcement on her twitter. She tweeted: "Guys, I know I've hinted around a lot, but the time is near. I have my biggest news yet, about to break super soon. keep those ears open. (; aaaand no, ';biggest news yet' does not refer to a relationship; that's also an area I try &keep to myself. but guys, you know, I do act.. (;"
Don't forget that you can also catch Debby in "The Suite Life Movie" on Disney Channel March 25.
