Although this is not a Disney Channel production, the main actors featured in the half-hour tween sitcom are from the real-life Disney pop sensation "Savvy". In "The Wannabes" series, the teens are desperate to become pop stars, but they attend a strict arts academy boarding school where they are only able to stick to the classics like ballet, instrumental music and Shakespeare. After being punished to work in a local café, the teens meet the owner's daughter who talks her dad into letting the academy students rock out at the café, but they have to keep their identities a secret by wearing disguises.
The show was created by writer/producer, Doreen Spicer who wrote the Disney Channel's hit movie "Jump In!" The series is directed by Eric Dean Seaton who has worked on other hits such as "Hannah Montana", "Sonny with a Chance", "That's So Raven," "Cory in the House" and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody."
