True Jackson, VP is a Nickelodeon Kid Com about 15-year-old True Jackson, played by Keke Palmer who is appointed vice president of youth apparel at the fashion house MadStyle. It was created by Andy Gordon, who executive produced Just Shoot Me! and 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, 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 the bigger live-action shows on the network.
