LOS ANGELES (AP) — The title character of television's "Jessie" heads in an unprecedented direction for a Disney Channel series: toward the altar.

Disney Channel executive Adam Bonnett says it's the first time a lead character on the children's TV channel has become engaged.

In a four-episode arc that will conclude this fall, 22-year-old character Jessie Prescott dives into a whirlwind romance and accepts her boyfriend's proposal of marriage.

Debby Ryan stars as Jessie, a young Texas woman who moves to New York City to pursue acting and becomes a nanny.

The Disney Channel comedy airs on Friday nights.
