"Boy Meets World" fans, rejoice -- Cory and Topanga are coming back to TV.

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, who played Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence on the popular series, have signed on to reprise the roles in the pilot for the Disney Channel's spinoff, "Girl Meets World."

A rep for the Disney Channel told E! News that this time around, the duo will appear as "a happily married couple and parents to 13-year-old Riley, from whose point of view the story is told."

The pilot is still in the "very early stages" of development and was created/will be executive produced by "Boy Meets World" creator Michael Jacobs, the rep added. A nationwide search is currently under way for Riley.

TVLine first reported the news of Savage and Fishel's casting.

Savage shared the news Monday on his Twitter page:

I'm going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The "Boy Meets World" sequel is officially happening!

-- Ben Savage (@BenSavage) November 26, 2012

Fishel wrote a thank you note to fans on her blog, saying in part, "Because I have known Michael Jacobs, Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, and Bill Daniels for 19 years, I know we share many of the same feelings regarding the 7 wonderful years we spent making BMW. Those years were among the most warm, hilarious, insightful, educational years of my life and I wouldn't trade them for the world. Another thing I wouldn't trade for anything is the integrity and the heart with which BMW was made. I promise with the entirety of my heart that we will make GMW with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that you learned to expect from BMW."

She added that she did not know how many "Boy Meets World" cast members would appear on the new series, or how often.

"Boy Meets World" ran on ABC from 1993-2000.

Danielle Fishel’s acting career didn’t exactly take off after Boy Meets World... unless 2003’s National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze and its 2006 sequel, National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2: College at Sea, count as “highlights.” Instead, she’s focused her energies on hosting, enjoying stints on The Tyra Banks Show (2007), Style Network’s The Dish (2008-2011), and MSN TV’s Last Night on TV (present).

And after losing 28 pounds through the NutriSystem diet, Danielle became a spokeswoman for the company in 2006. She has since regained some of the weight, but the gorgeous gal is finally happy with her body. She dished to People in 2010, "I've learned to be comfortable in my own skin."

It hasn’t been all roses, however: Danielle was arrested in December 2007 for a drunken driving warrant in Newport Beach, California. (The headlines in the entertainment world were very original, ranging from “Girl Meets Cops” to “Boy Meets World Star Meets Jail Cell.”)

Danielle, 31, recently finished college, and she’s engaged to a man named Tim Belusko, whom she met while tutoring math.

Fishel was a mainstay on ABC's TGIF lineup for seven years, playing Cory's girlfriend Topanga Lawrence on Boy Meets World. Following this stint, she cracked people up in National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze and became the host of Say What? Karaoke on MTV.

Danielle Fishel Quote " I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't do drugs. I shop, okay?" 83 Sex Appeal

If we had to describe Danielle Fishel's appearance in one word, it would have to be "thick." She has the hips and booty that would make Sir Mix-A-Lot proud and boasts a pair of knockers that would fit in well at Hooters. If that weren't enough, Fishel has a pair of full lips that are only second to Angelina Jolie's. Put it all together and it's obvious this ex-Boy Meets World star possesses a great package.

62 Success

Were it not for the teen-targeted sitcom Boy Meets World, we fear we would never have known Danielle Fishel. She starred on the "Thank Goodness It's Friday" ABC show from 1993 to 2000. As Topanga Lawrence, Fishel cultivated a large following with this bright and attractive character.

When Boy Meets World ended, Fishel appeared in the made-for-TV movie Rocket's Red Glare and co-starred with Hunter Tylo in the straight-to-video feature Longshot. Her most popular appearance post-BMW came in 2003, in National Lampoon Presents School Daze. In this comedy, she presented a sexier, more playful side that rubbed male audiences just right.

Aside from acting, Fishel grabbed headlines when it was revealed she attended her prom with 'N Sync singer and aspiring spaceman Lance Bass. Though nothing truly came out of the relationship, the news drew attention to Fishel, who landed a hosting job on MTV's Say What? Karaoke in 2003. Her latest project involves voice-over work for an upcoming animated movie called The Chosen One, but we hope to see her pretty face more frequently in years to come.

Danielle Fishel Biography Like an oasis in the Arizona desert, Danielle Christine Fishel was born in Mesa, Arizona on May 5th, 1981. While in elementary school, Fishel had the opportunity to appear in several small-time commercials and of course, she immediately jumped on the chance. Before she knew it, she had loads of TV commitments thanks to a highly marketable smile and cute face.

a real doll

Fishel's first noteworthy project was as Mattel's trademark Barbie girl. Danielle did several commercials for the popular doll and soon, her parents realized that she possessed a special talent. Substantial television work followed, as she landed two guest spots on Full House, as well as one on Harry and the Hendersons.

a sweet ride on bmw

In 1993, the directors of a new ABC show called Boy Meets World cast Fishel as Topanga Lawrence, a character destined for the occasional appearance. After Fishel appeared as Topanga a few times, the creators realized that her personality fit in well with the plot and gave her a full-time spot on the cast. Topanga became an integral part of Boy Meets World and part of the reason fans tuned in on Friday nights.

For seven years, Fishel grew with the show, riding the wave through her high school days. In 2000, the creators decided to end its run, but not before Topanga and Cory Matthews (star Ben Savage) tied the knot. Though Fishel experienced success as a result of this one sitcom, she realized the future was bright. She had just finished her high school studies yet already had almost a decade's worth of acting under her belt.

making headlines

Before returning to acting, Fishel was grabbing news for other reasons. She attended her prom with 'N Sync member Lance Bass, and kept busy with a popular column in 16 magazine (called "Danielle's Dairy"). Refocusing on her career, she landed roles in the made-for-TV movie Rocket's Red Glare and the little-known film Longshot (both in 2000).

After being named one of Teen People's 21 Hottest Stars Under 21, Fishel focused her efforts on more popular projects. She showed her wild side in the movie National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze and then moved on to host Say What? Karaoke on MTV in 2003. Most recently, she appeared on an episode of Yes, Dear on CBS, and can next be heard in the animated film The Chosen One. Now legally a woman, Fishel has plenty of time to carve herself an even more successful career.

Fishel was born in Mesa, Arizona, the daughter of Jennifer, a personal manager, and Rick Fishel, a medical equipment sales executive.[1] She is of half Maltese descent.[2] The family relocated to Yorba Linda, California when she was three weeks old. She has one younger brother, Christopher. She graduated from Calabasas High School in 1999.[citation needed]

[edit] Career

In 1991, the then-10-year-old Fishel was discovered in a community theater where she performed in two productions, The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan. She quickly moved on to do voice-overs and commercials, including several as a Barbie Girl for Mattel. Soon after, she appeared on two episodes of the hit show Full House, guest starring as a character named Jennifer. She also had a small role on Harry and the Hendersons, playing Jessica. Fishel's mother became her full-time manager.

In 1993, at the age of 12, Fishel began her well-known role as Topanga Lawrence on ABC's pilot series Boy Meets World. Originally written as a small part, Topanga became a recurring role. After a successful first year, Fishel became a show regular.[3] Fishel's character was a sparky, intelligent girl who was mature beyond her years; she replaced the nerdy Stuart Minkus as the brains of the class. The long-running show ended in 2000 after seven years.

Fishel was on the cover of Seventeen in December 1998. She took home a 1998 Young Star for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series.[4] In June 1999, she was one of "The 21 Hottest Stars Under 21" as presented by Teen People.

Fishel was on the cover of GQ's hottest stars to watch in GQ's 1997 October issue. (GQ 1997 10)

She appeared in the music video for "Until You Loved Me" by Canadian music group The Moffatts.

Since Boy Meets World ended, Fishel has appeared in several films, including National Lampoon's Dorm Daze. In 2006, she appeared in three made-for-DVD releases: National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2: College at Sea (appearing again as "Marla" from the first film), the action film Gamebox 1.0 (playing a dual role), and The Chosen One, an independent animated film in which she provides the voice of the lead female character.

In 2006, Fishel appeared as a guest on The Tyra Banks Show where she discussed her dramatic weight loss with the use of the Nutrisystems Diet.[5] Following her appearance on the show, Fishel became a spokesperson for NutriSystem. She also became a special correspondent for The Tyra Banks Show, starting in early February 2007.[6] By 2010 she had gained some of the weight back, and told People magazine she could not maintain her NutriSystem weight.[7]

From August 2008 to March 2011 Fishel hosted The Dish for the Style Network, which satirized pop culture in a format similar to sister network E! Entertainment Television's The Soup. Fishel was also on Fuse TV as host of The Fuse 20, and was a guest star on the round table on an episode of Chelsea Lately. Beginning in 2012, Fishel became the host of MSN TV's Last Night on TV.

[edit] Personal life

In real life, Fishel dated her Boy Meets World co-star Ben Savage.[5][6] She dated former 'N Sync member Lance Bass, who was her date to her high school prom.[8] In 2007, Fishel was arrested in Los Angeles County on a drunken driving warrant.[9]

Fishel attended California State University, Fullerton from 2008 to 2012 and graduated on December 19, 2012.
