''True Jackson, VP'' is a Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} KidCom about 15-year-old True Jackson, played by Music/{{Keke Palmer}} who is appointed vice president of youth apparel at the fashion house [=MadStyle=]. It was created by Andy Gordon, who executive produced ''Series/JustShootMe'' and ''Series/NewsRadio''. Supporting characters include Mr. Madigan (Greg Proops) her kooky boss and CEO of [=MadStyle=]; Amanda (Danielle Bisutti), True's bitter rival; Lulu (Ashley Argota), True's spacey yet brilliant best friend; and Ryan (Matt Shively), True's other friend who often disrupts the workplace with his oafishness. There's also her crush Jimmy (Robbie Amell) and camp receptionist Oscar (Ron Butler).

True must deal with all the trappings of the adult workplace; jealous co-workers, deadlines, regular meetings all on top of being a normal teenager attending school. And of course, since this a kids show, [[HilarityEnsues wacky hi-jinks ensue]] when both of her personal and professional life combine.

The show did alright for Nickelodeon, but apparently not up to the standards set by some of [[Series/{{iCarly}} the]] [[Series/{{Victorious}} bigger]] [[Series/BigTimeRush live-action shows]] on the network. Episodes also took awhile to air, as the show ended with 2 seasons and 60 episodes over about a three year period, probably due to ExecutiveMeddling, progressively being ScrewedByTheNetwork, or that the two supporting actors were busy with other shows like ''Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures'' and ''Series/TheTroop''.
!!This show contains examples of:
* AccidentalKiss: Between Jimmy and True in "The Prototype".
* AdultsAreUseless: Averted, two of the adult characters, Mr. Madigan and Oscar, are actually treated with some modicum of respect and usefulness.
* AlphaBitch: To a degree, Amanda. Also, Pinky Turzo and Kyle Sandbox at True's school.
* AnAesop: Most episodes end this way, with True learning a valuable lesson.
* AirVentPassageway: Ryan and Lulu try to escape out of [=MadStyle's=] basement through one.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Oscar and single-episode character Simon Christini.
* ApatheticTeacher: Ms. Park
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Ryan's last name is ''Laserbeam''. Also, Kyle Sandbox is the name of True's rival in "The Fifth of Prankuary" and "Class Election".
* AsianAirhead: Lulu
** Subverted, since Lulu is shown to actually be really smart, but still acts goofy.
* AsHimself: Music/JustinBieber and Care Bears on Fire in ''True Concert,'' Wrestling/JohnCena in ''Pajama Party.''
* BookEnds: The first episode's end shot before the credits, ends with True outside her door, smiling before closing it marked "Vice President". Last episode ends the same way, except it's marked [[spoiler: "President"]].
* BorrowedCatchphrase: Just about every main character uses True's "You said what now?!" throughout the course of the series.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Mr. Madigan, of course.
* ButtMonkey: Kopelman, for sure, before [[spoiler: Mr. Madigan retired]].
** Even his nephew gets this treatment, just because he was related to Kopelman.
** Amanda had become the butt monkey just as much as Kopelman later on, culminating in her [[spoiler:age regression by the Fountain of Youth and ensuing wedding postponement or cancellation and forced firing from Mad Style]].
* {{Catch Phrase}}: "YOU SAID WHAT NOW?!" and "Not even!"
* ChainOfDeals: One episode had this plot, whose purpose was to obtain the recipe for Mr. Madigan's favorite pistachio ice cream.

* ClosetGeek: ''True Matchmaker'' reveals that Amanda and Oscar are secretly fans of "Space Plantation".

* EvilLaugh: Mr. Madigan in ''The Fifth of Prankuary'': "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to laugh diabolically and back out of the room."
* {{Fanservice}}: Amanda is no stranger to this trope.
* FashionShow: Regularly, even as part of meetings to show of new designs.
* FreudianExcuse: When Amanda was in high school, she was a "dork" that got bullied a lot, particularly by the most popular girls in school--this is probably at least part of the mean why she's so mean as an adult.
* {{Genius Ditz}}: Lulu--while she may act rather hyper and goofy, it turns out that she's actually very intelligent.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Oscar, the AmbiguouslyGay receptionist wore a "Frankie Says Relax" shirt in the beginning of the "Flirting With Fame" episode, in reference to [[NoYay Stage Gay]] group Music/FrankieGoesToHollywood.

'''Lulu:''' Backpack?\\
'''Ryan:''' Yeah, I just couldn't think of the word for a second there.
* GirlPosse: The Pinks, a clique of mean girls led by Pinky Turzo, played by [[Series/{{iCarly}} Jennette [=McCurdy=]]].
* GrandFinale: [[spoiler: In the end, Amanda gets age-regressed into a 10-year-old after falling into the Fountain of Youth and True becomes the new boss at Max Style after Max retires to start a family with his wife, with a new staff comprising of teenagers in addition to Lulu, Ryan and Jimmy including Lulu's boyfriend Mikey J and Ryan's on-off crush Kelsey with the only adult in the staff being Kopelman.]]
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Episodes often times start with the word "True".

* PlayingHardToGet: Kelsey does this to Ryan.
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: "True Mall," an episode that introduces plenty of new characters and is set in Mad Style's store at the mall.
* PostKissCatatonia: After Jimmy accidentally kisses True. Also doubles as CrowningMomentOfFunny.
