Disney’s new show, “Saturday,” is set to premiere on March 24, and it promises to be an exciting ride. Executive-produced by Marsai Martin, Norman Vance Jr., Carol Martin, and Nicole Dow, the show is all set to break barriers and bring a unique twist to the classic roller skating show. With a star-studded cast, this show is set to be a hit among audiences of all ages.
Marsai Martin is a well-known name in Hollywood, having acted and produced several hit shows and movies in the past. However, this time around, she has decided to stay behind the camera as an executive producer. Alongside her are Norman Vance Jr., Carol Martin, and Nicole Dow, who have also played crucial roles in bringing the show to life. With such a talented team behind the scenes, it’s no wonder that “Saturday” is already creating buzz among viewers.
Cast of Characters
Of course, no show is complete without a talented cast of characters to bring the story to life. On Saturday, viewers will be treated to a diverse and dynamic cast that includes some of the most talented actors and actresses working today.
Danielle Jalade, who stars as Paris Johnson, the lead character, has been passionate about the arts since she was young. Jalade attended Amazing Grace Conservatory for theater and landed the role of young Nala in the Lion King Broadway show when she was just nine years old. Through her experiences on tour for over a year, she developed a deep understanding of acting fundamentals and how to get into character.
Jalade’s casting in Saturdays as the lead character, Paris Johnson, was a dream come true for her. She was ecstatic to be working with Marsai Martin, the executive producer of the show. Jalade had been a long-time fan of Martin’s work, particularly her contributions behind and in front of the camera for Black-ish. Being closer in age to Martin was a source of inspiration for Jalade, who was excited to learn from her and grow as an actress.
Jalade’s passion for the arts doesn’t stop at acting; she also aspires to be a producer and director for her own content. She looks up to Martin, who is building a blueprint for young creatives to dream big. Jalade believes that Saturdays will break stereotypes and open more doors for Black children who grow up watching Disney. She hopes that young viewers will feel seen and represented by the show’s characters.
Jalade is joined by a talented cast that includes Golden Brooks as Deb Johnson, Omar Gooding as Cal Johnson, Jermaine Harris as London Johnson, and Daria Johns as Simone. These actors bring their unique personalities to their roles and make the show come alive. With the guidance of Martin and the rest of the production team, Saturdays promise to be a groundbreaking show that will inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.
“Saturday” promises to be an exciting addition to Disney’s lineup of shows, with a talented cast, an engaging plot, and a message that inspires viewers to pursue their passions. With a team of executive producers who know the industry inside out and a cast that brings their A-game to every performance, this show is sure to be a hit among audiences of all ages. So mark your calendars for March 24 and get ready for an unforgettable roller skating adventure.
