The First Lady of the United States will be appearing in an episode of Disney's Jessie sitcom.
Michelle Obama, the wife of US President Barack Obama, will guest star on Disney Channel comedy Jessie in an upcoming episode.
The episode highlights the service, sacrifice and needs of military families. Obama will appear as part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative.
Additionally, Obama will take part in a public service announcement that accompanies the episode.
On the episode, titled From The White House To Our House, Jessie (Debby Ryan) and Zuri (Skai Jackson) plan a birthday party for Taylor (Kyla-Drew Simmon) whose mother is a deployed member of the military.
But when Taylor doesn’t want to celebrate without her mother, Zuri turns to Obama for help.
Obama has made numerous appearances on news and talk shows, but she’s only guest-starred once before on a scripted show – playing herself on Nickelodeon’s iCarly.
She is also set to guest star on a military-themed episode of ABC’s Nashville in May. – Reuters
