Starring Corbin Bleu ("High School Musical") and Keke Palmer ("Akeelah and the Bee") in her Disney Channel debut, "Jump In!" is a coming-of-age story about Brooklyn teenager Izzy Daniels (Bleu) whose father dreams of him becoming a champion boxer. When his neighbor Mary (Palmer) asks him to substitute for a jumper on her double Dutch team in time for the city championship, Izzy jumps in and discovers a passion for the world of competitive jump roping. Rounding out the primarily African-American cast of "Jump In!" are David Reivers ("Poseiden") and Shanica Knowles ("Hannah Montana").

"Jump In!" premiered on Disney Channel on January 12, 2007 with the highest ever Disney Channel Original Movie ratings in total viewers and kids, beating out even "High School Musical" and "Cheetah Girls 2."

"Jump In!" was directed by Paul Hoen ("South of Nowhere" and "Read It nd Weep") and written by Doreen Spicer (Disney's "The Proud Family"), and Regina Hicks and Karin Gist ("Girlfriends").
