"On the show, Lizzie said she was on vacation with her family, but in real life, actress Lalaine was working on a spinoff titles What's Stevie Thinking. The show was about Miranda, her sister Stevie, and her family as they worked in a zoo in Australia. While the show never made it to TV, Selena Gomez almost made her Disney Channel debut way before Wizards Of Waverly Place, when she was cast in the lead role of Stevie."
