SeriesDate //

Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today announced THE J TEAM, a new live-action musical starring and executive produced by pop star and social media sensation JoJo Siwa, will be available to stream exclusively on the service beginning Friday, September 3. The teaser trailer and art were also revealed today on Siwa’s social accounts.

In addition to Siwa, cast members of THE J TEAM include NAACP Image Awards(R) nominee Tisha Campbell-Martin (“Martin,” “Empire”), Laura Soltis (“Hiccups”), Julia Marley (“Dead to Me”), Kerrynton Jones (“Little Fires Everywhere”) and Kiara T. Romero (“The Prom”).

THE J TEAM is a 90-minute feature-length film that follows a young girl named JoJo (Siwa) whose life is turned upside down when her beloved dance coach Val (Soltis) decides to retire and is replaced by a sparkle-hating instructor named Poppy (Campbell-Martin). Wanting to stay in the running for an upcoming dance competition, JoJo and her best friends, The Rubies (Jones, Romero), must try their hardest to abide by Poppy’s new, harsh rules. Realizing she cannot hide her sparkle or bow anymore, JoJo is kicked out of her dance troupe and must rediscover what dancing means to her.
