Two Girls from San Tan Valley Star in New TV Series "Best Friends"

“Best Friends” is the story of two young girls, Jade Sanders (Nicole Criss) and Amy Henderson (Jewel Brown) who take a leap of faith and decide to chase their dreams of Hollywood stardom.  One is an introvert who escapes her shyness through acting; the other a rambunctious singer with a golden voice. After several attempts they convince their parents to move to LA for the summer. If they succeed in their selected craft, they will move permanently. Upon their arrival they experience the ups and downs of the Hollywood media circus, but through it all they have their families and most importantly, each other.

"I actually came up with the show idea when I discovered, Nicole's best friend, Jewel could sing in a YouTube video. I thought this would make for a great Disney or ABC Family series. I am very excited about all the positive feedback we are already receiving and I look forward to delivering a great new show for all the kids to enjoy", says director/producer Nancy Criss.

Look for Best Friends to premiere it's new season starting September 17, 2012 with a new episode airing each Monday evening. You can view "Best Friends" on their YouTube channel at or their Facebook page.

"Best Friends" is created by Nancy Criss, written by Dawn Chapman and Melvin Johnson Jr. For updates, visit us at or follow the series on Facebook.
