DISNEY CHANNEL ORDERS "GIRL MEETS WORLD," A COMEDY SERIES FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES FROM MICHAEL JACOBS ("BOY MEETS WORLD")

Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage Star

Disney Channel has ordered "Girl Meets World," a comedy series for kids and families from executive producer Michael Jacobs ("Boy Meets World"). Starring are 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard ("Spy Kids All the Time in World in 4D") as the girl -- Riley Matthews -- 14-year-old Sabrina Carpenter ("Sofia the First" voice cast and a newly signed Hollywood Records recording artist) as her best friend Maya, and Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage reprising the "Cory and Topanga" roles they made famous in ABC's hugely popular sitcom "Boy Meets World" (1993-2000).

The announcement was made today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. Production on the multi-camera series will begin this summer in Los Angeles for a scheduled 2014 premiere on Disney Channel.

Bonnett said, "Boy Meets World' and its story of adolescent self discovery resonated with an entire generation of tweens. In the same way audiences fell in love with Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, we look forward to introducing our viewers to their daughter Riley Matthews in 'Girl Meets World' and building a memorable connection with a whole new generation of fans."

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 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.

Jacobs said, "I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids.'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."

The series was created by Michael Jacobs ("Boy Meets World," "Dinosaurs," "My Two Dads," "Charles In Charge") and April Kelly ("Boy Meets World") and is executive-produced by Jacobs. "Girl Meets World" is from It's A Laugh Productions, Inc. and carries a TV-G parental guideline.
