Selena Gomez returns to executive-produce and star in one of Disney Channel's most successful series ever in the television event "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex," premiering FRIDAY, MARCH 15 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Starring Gomez, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, Gregg Sulkin and Beau Mirchoff, the special is based on the multiple Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel original series "Wizards of Waverly Place," which, during its series run was TV's #1 series across Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14.

In "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex," the Russo family and friends travel to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives... but when Alex (Gomez) tries to prove she's more than a seemingly carefree young Wizard, she inadvertently conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. When Evil Alex gets roped into a charming young wizard's foreboding plan to take over the world, Good Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a monumental battle between the two versions of herself - all atop the Tower of Pisa.

To hone their magical skills, viewers can visit disneychannel.com/wizards which will feature a host of activities, including an enchanted Italian card game with a Russo twist, and a sweepstakes competition where viewers can enter to win fun prizes used during the making of "The Wizards Return: Alex vs Alex."
