The Hannah Montana TV Show

April 20th, 2022

Making its debut in March, 2006 on Disney Channel, Hannah Montana, the Emmy Award nominated American television series has become a great success and is set to return for a third season in the not too distant future.

The series itself features a teenage girl, who appears to be fairly average, but the truth of the matter is; she leads a double life. By day, Miley Stewart is a student at school but by night all this changes when she takes on the role of Hannah Montana (played by Miley Cyrus), the famous pop singer. Everyone apart from her very close family and friends are totally unaware of the double life she leads.

The Hannah Montana television series was co-created by Michael Poryes, Richard Correll and Barry O’Brien and the original idea for the show was a derivative of an episode of Goin’ Hollywood entitled “That’s So Raven”. Record ratings of 5.4 million viewers for Disney Channel were achieved and these results were quoted as being better than the wildest dreams of the organization.

The popularity of this television series which every single girl of that age (and most boys for that matter) can relate to has resulted in all manner of merchandise being produced such as clothing and jewelry, not to mention a selection of Hannah Montana dolls which are now accompanied by dolls based on the other characters from the show too.

The Main Characters and Plot of the Series

Miley Stewart played by Miley Cyrus is a girl in her mid teenage years. In the daytime she attends school along with her peers but when night time comes she turns into a successful pop singer by the name of Hannah Montana.

She started her life as a hillbilly from Tennessee but these days she lives in California with her father and her brother. Unfortunately her mother died before Miley reached her teenage years. However, her dad, who was a singer in his younger days, also lives a double life as Hannah’s manager, Robbie Ray.

On more than one occasion Miley finds herself in difficult situations as only her family and close friends know about the life she leads. These incidents are usually along the lines of being late for school the morning after appearing in a pop concert.

Lilly Truscott and Oliver Oken make up the best of friends threesome. Oliver was at one time in love with Hannah Montana, but this was prior to finding out that she was really Miley Stewart. On the other hand Lilly has been a fan of Hannah Montana for years and found out Miley’s secret one night in the dressing room following a concert. Although they have their moments, as all teenagers do, they soon make up and for the most part are the very best of friends.

Jackson Stewart is Miley’s elder brother and the funny person of the series. An average student, Jackson prefers to spend his time on food, girls and perfecting his image.

Robby Stewart is the widowed father of Miley and Jackson. Following the death of his wife he was forced to give up his singing career to look after his grieving children. As well as being Mileys dad he is also Hannah’s manager and sports a mustache when in this role to stop people spotting him as Mileys father. Using reverse psychology he gives his daughter as much professional advice as he can. He has a noticeable sweet tooth even though he does not practice what he preaches about the affects too much sugar has on a person.

As well as the series receiving high ratings, Hannah Montana concerts have proved to be extremely popular and boast ticket sell outs on a constant basis.
