When news leaked this month that Disney Channel was planning to spin-off the ’90s sitcom “Boy Meets World,” this time with lovebirds Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) as parents, the Internet peed itself with delight.
Well, get ready to change your pants again.
Savage and Fishel are “officially attached” to the proposed series, creatively titled “Girl Meets World.” That’s according to Nellie Andreeva, Deadline’s seemingly omnipotent TV editor.
During “Boy Meets World” 1993 to 2000 run, Topanga and Cory got married. In this new chapter, they’re parents to a preteen daughter who will be the series’ focal point. Casting is underway for Topanga and Corey’s progeny. Once that’s done, Andreeva reports, the show is expected to get a formal pilot order.
That sounds terrific. Just make sure Will Friedle is involved. As Cory’s brother, he stole every scene–and fenced it for twice its worth.
