The First Lady is going to Disney. According to a report from TV Guide on Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama will guest star on the hit comedy series “Jessie" in early May. The episode, titled "From the White House to Our House," features a storyline that aims to raise awareness about the service and sacrifice of military families.
A Disney Channel press release describes the episode, in which series regulars Jessie (Debby Ryan) and Zuri (Skai Jackson) host a birthday party for new pal Taylor, who's missing her military deployed mom and doesn’t want to celebrate without her. Cue up the cameo from Mrs. Obama, who’s on hand to help out. A military-themed public service announcement will also run with the episode.
Mrs. Obama already has a history with Disney. Last year she was a keynote speaker at Disney's Veterans Institute. The mom of two previously appeared on an episode of Nickelodeon’s “iCarly" and she appeared on the season finale of “Parks and Recreation” and an episode of the adult drama “Nashville.”
You can see Michelle Obama on “Jessie” on Friday, May 16 at 8:00 p.m. on Disney Channel.
