The First Lady will appear on an episode that highlights military families in May
First Lady Michelle Obama will guest star on Disney Channel comedy “Jessie” on Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m.
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, FLOTUS 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.
Mrs. 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.
The cast of “Jessie” will join the First Family at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, as well.
