Disney Channel has picked up comedy pilot Girl Meets World to series. The project, a sequel to the TGIF ABC comedy Boy Meets Girl, has been on a fast track to the Disney Channel schedule since November when word of the idea leaked, catching fire online and sparking huge interest from fans. Girl Meets World, co-starring the original series’ Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, was created by Boy Meets World creators Michael Jacobs and April Kelly and is executive produced by Jacobs. It has a premise similar to the ABC series, which centered on Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and his best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) as they navigate sixth grade with the help of their longtime teacher George Feeny (William Daniels) as well as on Cory’s relationship with his family. As its title suggests, Girl Meets World switches the point of view from male to female.
