And another unprecedented move for the Disney Channel.
The titular character on the network's hit series Jessie is heading towards the altar. Four episodes will be dedicated to the storyline, which is said to center on 22-year-old Jessie Prescott's relationship with her 25-year-old beau Brooks (Pierson Fode), who pops the question after the two enter a whirlwind romance, marking the first time a lead character on a children's series has gotten engaged.
"Jessie is an adult, and we felt we could tackle this in a way that still feels appropriate for our audience," Adam Bonnett, Disney Channel executive vice president of original programming, said.
