Welcoming To The Stage: The J Team, Starring JoJo Siwa.

Dust off your dancing shoes and pull out your brightest bow as Paramount+ welcomes The J Team, a new live-action musical starring and executive produced by popstar and social media sensation, JoJo Siwa. The original feature film will be available to stream exclusively on Paramount+ from Saturday, 4 September.

The 90-minute feature-length film follows a young girl named JoJo (Siwa) whose life is turned upside down when her beloved dance coach, Val (Laura Soltis), decides to retire and is replaced by a sparkle-hating instructor named Poppy (Tisha Campbell-Martin). Wanting to stay in the running for an upcoming dance competition, JoJo and her best friends, The Rubies (Kerrynton Jones, Kiara T. Romero), must try their hardest to abide by Poppy’s new, harsh rules. Realising she cannot hide her sparkle or bow anymore, JoJo is kicked out of her dance troupe and must rediscover what dancing means to her.
The J Team is directed by Emmy® Award winner Michael Lembeck (The Santa Clause 2, Tooth Fairy), written by Eydie Faye (Fuller House) and produced by Ron French (Five Star Christmas). Don Dunn (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before”) serves as executive producer.
Produced by Nickelodeon and Awesomeness, The J Team marked the first production under Awesomeness and Nickelodeon Live-Action Film Studio head Syrinthia Studer.
