Catch Davis’ own JJ Totah in the series premiere of “Back in the Game” at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on ABC.

“Back in the Game” is about a single mom and former all-star softball player (played by actress Maggie Lawson) who moves back in with her father (James Caan) and finds herself coaching a youth baseball team made up of athletically challenged misfit kids. JJ will play the role of Michael, one of those kids.

JJ, 12, previously appeared in a recurring role on the Disney Channel’s popular show, “Jessie.”

He is the son of Davis residents Suheil and Christine Totah and brother of Alex, a student at Da Vinci Charter Academy, and Camille, a student at UCLA.

JJ got his start in acting with the Davis Musical Theatre Company and later performed with the Sacramento Theatre Company and River City Theatre Company.

For the past several years, he’s been living in Southern California with his mom, auditioning for and landing roles in films, web-only shows, commercials and television, and performing stand-up comedy routes at the Hollywood Improv.

Landing the role on “Jessie” was a dream come true for JJ, who now moves on to an even bigger stage on ABC prime time, airing in a show that leads in to the popular “Modern Family.”

See a trailer for “Back in the Game” at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151385475233204&set=vb.546116848772000&type=2&theater. That’s JJ in the trailer singing Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way.”
