Girl Meets World is officially a go!
Disney Channel on Monday gave a series order to the much buzzed-about Boy Meets World sequel, which stars newcomer Rowan Blanchard as Riley Matthews, the teenage daughter of Cory and Topanga (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, reprising their respective roles).
The formal logline for the multi-cam comedy, which is slated to bow in 2014, is as follows:
Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that Boy Meets World is renowned for — only this time from a tween girl’s perspective — as the curious and bright 7th grader Riley and her quick-witted friend Maya (played by Sabrina Carpenter) embark on an unforgettable middle school experience. But their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted slightly under the watchful eyes of Riley’s dad who’s also a faculty member — and their new History teacher — and Riley’s mom who owns a trendy afterschool hangout that specializes in pudding.
In a statement, executive producer Michael Jacobs said, “Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular.”
