Synopsis by Mark Deming

This made-for-cable comedy, based on a novel by Douglas Preston, concerns an American family who have adopted a chimpanzee brought back from the wilds of Africa. As an experiment, the family, headed by a pair of anthropologists, raises the chimp as if it were a child, teaching it to communicate using American Sign Language. Produced for The Disney Channel, The Jennie Project stars Lance Guest, Alex D. Linz, and Sheila Kelley; the film first aired on July 13, 2001.
