The first song you hear is Jake's love song to Tamara," explains Chessler, whose approach was simple.
"I wanted the songs to be engaging, catchy and fun, and for lack of a genre description, a little bit is hoping more original songs are in the show's future: "I've been begging Mike to write more."

"Jenna is getting into the back seat of his car -- this was when he was still dating Lissa -- and he says to Jenna, ' Hey, be careful of my amp back there,' " Davern says. But when he lost the class presidency to Tamara, which was pretty emasculating to him, he had to find a new path." It just so happened that Davern had begun playing guitar for an indie he had recently finished about the Beach Boys, in which he plays founding member/lead guitarist Carl Wilson. Singer-songwriters Davern and the producers modeled Jake 2.0 after included Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson and John Mayer.
Because of Palos Verdes High's Southern California locale, a beachy, relaxed vibe seemed most appropriate -- "that barefoot, walking along the sand with your guitar is kind of Jake's thing," Davern says.
The 16-year-old social star met up with her peers at the bash, including Lilly Singh, Teala Dunn, and Eva Gutowski.
One of the show's main characters may be taking a step further than the rest.
"We'll see how far they take it," Davern says when asked about his character's full season-four arc, while Chessler explains that "it will be a little bit of a journey for him trying on this new persona that may or may not to who he really is." Does Jake's musical arc open the door for an all-musical episode down the line?
"That's something we're certainly open to if there was a good reason for it.
One of Ashley’s most awkward moments is “probably when you’re trying to make a joke and then you do and it falls flat because you took too long.
