Emmy Award-winning actress/comedian Jackée Harry seems to be all over TV these days. The 56-year-old, former “227” and Sister, Sister actress still remains busy, hot, gorgeous and relevant. Harry seems to have been able to avoid what many actors and actresses before her have not be able to…escape the trappings of being typecast as just another 80’s TV star.
Over the past few years the Winston-Salem, NC native has made several guest appearances on TV shows like Let’s Stay Together and Everybody Hates Chris. In most cases nothing long-term until grabbing a roll on the Byron Allen sitcom “The First Family ” last year.
“The First Family” reunites Harry with “227” alum Marla Gibbs. The series centers around William Johnson (Christopher B. Duncan), his wife Katherine (Kellita Smith) and their two sons and two daughters as they adjust to living in the White House. The series premieres on Centric TV on Friday April 19th, 2013 at 8pm.
More recently, Jackée was given a roll on the Disney Channel reboot/pilot of “Boy Meets World” called “Girl Meets World.” The show picks up several years after the end of the ABC series “Boy Meets World” with Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) now married with teen children of their own. The series is said to focus on the couple’s daughter Riley.
No date has been set for the pilot to air nor is there any word if the pilot will be picked up for a full season by the Disney Channel .
