For the teenage students at the Keaton School of the Arts, making it in the entertainment industry as singers, dancers or musicians is a dream. Attending the prestigious institution is a good start to achieving their goals, but the day-to-day reality of being a teenager -- including classes, family matters and relationship issues -- often get in the way. This drama series, shot in the style of a documentary, goes inside the school to show what the performers go through as they chase their dreams while having to navigate through their teenage years. The students include gifted ballet dancer Vanessa and best friend Carly, who is stuck in Vanessa's shadow; Alya, a skilled singer who lacks confidence; mysterious musician Miles, who harbors a big secret; and Scarlett, a singer with a big ego.
Now that the twins have graduated from high school, they're ready to start a new adventure -- in California.

After the twins move to California, the rest of their family -- minus dad -- is also forced to move there when brothers Joey and Parker ruin their Wisconsin home. Maddie keeps busy between basketball, academics and balancing a long-distance relationship with Diggie. Liv is happy that cousin Ruby appears to be following in her footsteps and is cast in a TV series. Joey, suddenly the cool kid in school, finds his calling as a comedian. Parker has his first crush as he attends a new high school. Karen considers pursuing modeling as she enjoys her new relaxed lifestyle in California.
The Ross kids head to summer camp in this spinoff of "Jessie." Emma, Ravi and Zuri spend the summer at Maine's Camp Kikiwaka, where their parents met when they were teenagers. The kids aren't used to being in the great outdoors, so cheerful head counselor Lou and camp heartthrob Xander help the siblings adjust to being at camp and show them the ropes of outdoor life. While Emma and Ravi become counselors in training, learning how to be responsible role models for younger campers, Zuri becomes friends with a couple of the kids at the camp, studious Tiffany and compulsive liar Jorge. Together, the Ross children settle into their new lives as they adapt to their summer home away from home.
"Jessie" is your typical fish-out-of-water story. Jessie is a small-town teen who leaves her Texas roots to take a job as a nanny for the Ross family's four precocious kids in New York. Heading the family are the parents: supermodel-turned-business mogul Christina and movie director Morgan. The oldest of the four children, teenager Emma, is the only biological child of the bunch. Her three brothers and sisters are all adopted -- American adoptee Luke, Indian adoptee Ravi and African adoptee Zuri. While watching four kids can be challenging for a teenager, Jessie has help in the form of the family's butler, Bertram, and the building's 20-year-old doorman, Tony. Adding to Jessie's challenging task is the family's pet, a 7-foot Asian water monitor lizard.
