Based on the characters in the popular series aimed at mid-teens, Life with Derek, this made-for-television movie, Vacation with Derek costars most of the same cast. Derek (Michael Seater) and Casey (Ashley Leggat) continue their sibling rivalry during a family vacation to visit their grandmother at her beautiful lake front lodge. Things heat up for Casey when she meets Jesse, a handsome young dancer who is a waiter at the lodge. Not quite Dirty Dancing, but the scenes are reminiscent. Meanwhile as Derek is chilling on his vacation, he falls for Roxy, the rich girl who lives across the lake. But when Roxy`s father, a greedy land developer, threatens to destroy the natural beauty around them, the McDonald-Venturi kids band together to save the lake and the lodge.
