‘Jessie': Debby Ryan Directs Her First Episode

August 22 marks a very special day for Debby Ryan — it’s her first time ever directing an episode, and we’ve got your exclusive first look!

In the episode, Jessie announces the exciting news that she has won tickets to the Justin Timberlake concert, thanks to her ex-boyfriend who has ties to the superstar.

“Girls I have some exciting news!” she tells Emma (Peyton List) and Zuri (Skai Jackson). “I just scored VIP wristbands to the concerts…I can’t believe I have scored two all-access passes!”

Unfortunately, there’s one major problem: there are only two tickets for three girls. Oh no! The girls compete to land the wristband of a lifetime to see JT!

Which lucky girl will nab the extra ticket?
