Stegina and Lehrman were participants in Disney Channel's inaugural Storytellers program, which develops the next generation of series creators and writers of programming for kids, tweens and families.
In the show, characters Paige and Frankie are quirky 13-year-old best friends who write funny songs and create music videos for their online channel, Bizaardvark.
