More info on "Girl Meets World"

The "Boy Meets World" sequel series "Girl Meets World" is moving forward -- in fact, Disney is casting the pilot episode as we speak. The pilot will be executive produced and written by Michael Jacobs, who served as executive producer of the original series, and it's set to start shooting in February. There hasn't been any official confirmation as to whether Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have signed on, but given her playful tweets and the fact that it's moving forward, we can say the chances are very, very good.

In a flash-forward sequence in the original series, the show hinted that Cory and Topanga would have a daughter named "Beverly Glen" -- but in "Girl Meets World," we'll instead be introduced to 13-year-old Riley Matthews.

Here's how she's described in the official casting breakdown: "13 years old, indelible personality, an adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, and spends most of her time juggling the obstacles that life throws her way... there is no obstacle in this girl's world that can dampen her bright spirit and eternal optimism."

In the series, Cory and Topanga also have a 14-year-old son, Elliot, who is a bit of a know-it-all when it comes to bossing his kid sister around.

Oh -- and did we mention that Cory is a seventh grade history teacher? Specifically, Riley's seventh grade history teacher.

Riley has a thick-as-thieves BFF of her own. We can't wait to meet Maya, Riley's best friend -- who is different from Riley in every way. She's a pessimist, and described as "darker and less trusting" than Riley. She's never known her father, and even though she's not a good student by any means, she looks to her history teacher, Cory, as a father figure. She's described as having "acerbic wit" and being "absolutely magnetic in attracting or intimidating the people in her sphere as she cares to. Dark and edgy, but just as fiercely loyal to Riley as Riley is to her."

Oh God, I need this show in my life.

Much as I love BMW, sitll don't want. The original cast made the show; they're not going to be able to top it.

backtoblack 6th-Nov-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
Sounds kind of terrible but I'd still watch it.

arianagrande 7th-Nov-2012 01:07 am (UTC)

emerald_soul 6th-Nov-2012 11:46 pm (UTC)

kris_terror 6th-Nov-2012 11:46 pm (UTC)

considering how inept eric was by the end of the show i can only see him either living at home or living with feeny. idk they just made him so fucking stupid that he could barely function.

As long as Danielle and Ben are full time cast members, everyone else can recur. And Maya better not be Shawn's daughter that he abandoned.
ahigheroctave 7th-Nov-2012 01:00 am (UTC)
This. First thought after reading that synopsis. Shawn would never.
just_for_kicks 7th-Nov-2012 01:39 am (UTC)
that was my first thought - and it better not be the case!
scootermcgaffin 6th-Nov-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
This will be awful but I will love it anyway.

mementox 6th-Nov-2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
O no honey..
cl0vergirl 7th-Nov-2012 02:35 am (UTC)
unfortunately i cant unsee her as a drunk alcoholic who worked at bloomingdales.

She was drunk, loud and stumbling at a minigolf course (anaheim, ca)
yes she did work at bloomingdales (newport beach, ca)
idgi 7th-Nov-2012 03:04 am (UTC)
her wiki page says that she lives in a modest house in hollywood. nothing wrong with that but you'd think she'd have some $ from her boy meets world days.
idgi 7th-Nov-2012 03:04 am (UTC)
when did she work at bloomingdales?
blackspyderlily 7th-Nov-2012 05:04 am (UTC)
Random fact: She's currently dating some kid I went to high school with.

Also, side note: I saw her at Best Buy w/ him once. She was TINY. She tried too hard to make herself unnoticed, that I noticed her. GOY.

Keep Corey away from motorcycles then.

Just for Topanga's internship though, I would think they would have moved back.

I just hope they didn't move to Pittsburgh.
