The Jersey is a television series produced by the Disney Channel and based on the Monday Night Football Club books by Gordon Korman. The Jersey is about Nick Lighter, Morgan Hudson, Coleman Galloway, and Elliot Riffkin, four teens who discover the magic of "the jersey", a mystical Oklahoma Sooners football jersey that transports them into the bodies of professional athletes. This is done in a way similar to the way that the main character in Quantum Leap, Sam, travels from body to body, and there is a different athlete featured in every episode. The show has several sports superstars as guest actors, including Dan Lyle, Michael Andretti, Terrell Davis, David Robinson, Malik Rose, Tony Gonzalez, Shannon Sharpe, Donovan McNabb, Byron Dafoe, Michael Strahan, Kurt Warner, Stephon Marbury, Sergei Fedorov, Kordell Stewart, Jerome Bettis, Junior Seau, Scott Steiner, Eddie George, Adrian L. Peterson, Sabrina Bryan, Randy Johnson and Laila Ali.

Show information

While production on the show wrapped in February 2002, new episodes were shown until 2003. The last few episodes aired early Saturday mornings on Disney and after all 65 episodes were shown. The Jersey was completely taken off the air in early-mid 2004. At this time, the network still required all of its shows to end after 65 episodes to avoid repeating storylines and find newer, fresher shows to bring in a broader audience.
