On March 28, 2013 Disney Channel announced that the live-action comedy series “Jessie” was renewed for a third season. Today FilmTelevisionAuditions.com is reporting that the casting director is auditioning talent for guest starring, recurring, and day player roles. The extras are cast throughout the season as needed. The series uses a multi-camera setup which is known as “filmized”, a technique in which video is made to appear to have been shot on film. “Jessie” is videotaped at Hollywood Center Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
Starring in “Jessie” is actress, singer, musician, songwriter and producer Debby Ryan playing the title role. In addition to appearing in episodes of the Disney Channel shows “Hannah Montana” and “Wizards of Waverly Place”, Ryan previously was a series regular playing Bailey Pickett in “The Suite Life on Deck”. Also starring in “Jessie” is Kevin Chamberlin as the grouchy and often lazy butler Bertram; Young Artist Awards winner Peyton List as the ditzy diva Emma; Young Artist Awards winner Karan Brar as the intelligent and gentle Zuri; Young Artist Awards winner Cameron Boyce as Luke; and Skai Jackson as Zuri.
Two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Pamela Eells O’Connell is creator and executive producer of “Jessie” and also serves as showrunner. Eells was also executive producer of “The Suite Life on Deck”, in which Debby Ryan was a cast member. Adam I. Lapidus also executive produces “Jessie”, with Shari Tavey as producer and Debby Ryan as co-producer.
