Best known for her role in the Disney Channel show Jessie, Skai Jackson has recently been cast in Lee Daniel’s new comedy pilot Our People on Fox.
Skai will play Aisha, the younger sister of Abel, whom the story centers around.
“Our People revolves around Abel (Bernard David Jones), a man from a bombastic African family that doesn’t have a word in their native language for “privacy,” and his fiancée Jenny (Beth Behrs), from a Midwestern family, as they try to build a normal life together — though nobody can agree what that “normal” means.”
Jackson joins the cast alongside Bernard David Jones (The Mayor), Beth Behrs (2 Broke Girls), Charles Parnell (The Last Ship) and Saidah Arrika Ekulona (Righteous Kill).
