Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know you can follow me on Twitter and Facebook for quick updates about the site. I will probably no longer be using the accounts I made previously, as it will be easier just to have one account. Thank you!!

Film   /   Gallery Update   /   Girl Flu

Exciting news! Jade’s independent film Girl Flu is set to premiere this June at the Los Angeles Film Festival! The films premiere will take place on June 6th and tickets will be available to purchase on May 10th. I’ve added the films poster to the gallery which you can check out now! Here’s a brief synopsis of the film! Tickets will be available to purchase on the film festivals website.  http://www.filmindependent.org/

Bird is mature for her age, a thoughtful sixth grader who dreams of doing the grocery shopping so that all food groups are represented, but whose emotional wisdom starts to slip when her body begins to develop. After her first period arrives in an embarrassingly public way, Bird turns to her single mother for guidance; however, her mom is a flighty stoner who finds this milestone just as befuddling as her young daughter. Already frustrated by their recent move to Echo Park from the Valley, Bird wishes everything would start making sense again.

Jade along with her friend and School of Rock co-star Breanna Yde recently sat down with Just Jared Jr. to talk about  music and of course, School of Rock!

JustJaredJr: What were you doing/where were you when you found out you got the role on School of Rock?

Breanna Yde: I was in San Diego going to get lunch when I found out I got the role in Nickelodeon’s School Of Rock.

Jade Pettyjohn: Oh this is a funny story. I was at school in class and my teacher came up and told me that I needed to call my mom right away, which isn’t normal, so I was already thinking that something was wrong. When I stepped out to call her she said “Jade Elizabeth Pettyjohn” and who doesn’t freak out thinking they are in trouble when their mom uses your middle name? My heart was pounding wondering what I did and there was this long silence until she finally said “YOU BOOKED IT!”

I have some exciting news! School of Rock has been renewed for season two! Huge congrats to Jade and the rest of the cast and crew!!

Just weeks after its debut, “School of Rock” has landed a second season at Nickelodeon, Variety has confirmed.

The series, inspired by the 2003 Jack Black movie of the same name, premiered on March 12 and has aired four episodes. Season 2 will consist of 13 episodes.

Paramount TV produces the kids’ musical comedy show, which marked the first series order for the television division of Paramount Pictures, which was behind the original film.

“School of Rock” follows musician-turned-substitute teacher Dewey (Tony Cavalero), who becomes the most unique and well-liked teacher a group of students have ever had. Although he has an alternative approach to teaching and could probably learn more from his students about history or math, he uses the language of rock ‘n’ roll to elevate and inspire his class to reach new heights as the band called School of Rock.

Ricardo Hurtado, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn and Breanna Yde star as the “School of Rock” students. Jim and Steve Armogida (“Crash & Bernstein,” “My Family”) are exec producers, along with Jay Kogen, Eli Bush, plus Scott Rudin and Richard Linklater, who produced and directed the original film, respectively.
