The dream job! Jesse McCartney had the time of his life while working on Summerland, the WB’s drama that aired from 2004 to 2005. The series followed Ava Gregory (Lori Loughlin), a designer who takes in her niece and nephews after the death of their parents. Kay Panabaker, Taylor Cole, Merrin Dungey, Shawn Christian, Ryan Kwantenand Zac Efron also starred in the series.
While there haven’t been discussions of a reboot, the singer, 34, wouldn’t be opposed to revisiting the show. “I never say no to anything before it’s created or conceptualize. I don’t know what the story line would be, but listen, any excuse to be shooting on the beach again. I’m all for it,” he told Us Weekly exclusively while promoting his new song, “Kiss the World Goodbye” on Thursday, August 5.
“When I first moved to Los Angeles, that was my first experience being a working actor in Hollywood, and I spent three or four days a week on the beach. I’m like, ‘This is the life! This is easy.’ … [I] love that show and working with that cast was incredible and everyone went on to do such fun, great things, and it might be hard to get that cast back again. Everyone’s onto their own lives, but it was a good time in my life for sure.”
As for Loughlin, 57, who became the face of the college admissions scandal last year after allegedly paying bribes to have her daughters admitted to USC, McCartney hasn’t been in touch.
