Rowan Blanchard is taking the lead in the Disney Channel pilot for the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World.

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are reprising their roles as Cory and Topanga Matthews, with the 11 year old Rowan Blanchard portraying their daughter Riley. The story will be told through the eyes of this young girl in a style that stays true to the original sitcom's format.

In this new show, Cory is a seventh grade history teacher with qualities similar to that of Mr. Feeny (William Daniels). He is married to Topanga with two children, Elliot and Riley. Boy Meets World creator and producer Michael Jacobs is returning to develop the pilot.

Production for the pilot is slated to begin next month.
