The series follows Jessie Prescott, a young woman from a small town with big dreams who, rebelling against her strict father, decides to leave the military base in Texas where she grew up and moves to New York City. She accepts a job as a nanny and moves into a multi-million dollar penthouse on the Upper West Side with the wealthy Ross family which includes: jet-setting parents, Morgan and Christina; and their four rambunctious children: Emma, Luke, Ravi and Zuri; along with the family pet (and Ravi's companion) Mr. (later Mrs.) Kipling, a 7 ft (2 m) Asian water monitor, that was later revealed to be a female. With a whole new world of experiences open to her, Jessie embarks on new adventures in the big city as she grows to rely on the love and support of the children in her care. Assisting her are Bertram, the family's sarcastic butler, and Tony, the building's 20-year-old doorman.

When Betty Ford appeared on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, this was only one of three times a first lady has appeared on a sitcom in the history of television. The next time would be Nancy Reagan on Diff'rent Strokes, and finally Michelle Obama appeared on the sitcom Jessie and iCarly. Marla Maples, the former wife of future president Trump, would appear on Spin City in the 90s. The only time a president has appeared on a sitcom was when Donald Trump appeared on Suddenly Susan and Fresh Prince of Bel Air in the 90s;( although he was not yet president at this point.) Ironically he co-starred with comedienne and future Trump-hater Kathy Griffin. There has been no sitting president that has appeared on a scripted TV show in the history of television. Also in 1995, the potential future Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was given the idea by her people to appear on the popular sitcom Home Improvement as a guest role. At the time, Hilary Clinton was the first lady and it was thought that appearing on Home Improvement would make her more likable. But this was also scuttled at the last minute. See more
