Boy Meets World star Ben Savage is going behind the camera.
The actor has been tapped to make his directorial debut on the Disney Channel update Girl Meets World, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. “It’s something I’ve been prepping for for the last 20 years,” Savage tells THR. Production on the episode begins at the end of the month.
According to an official episode synopsis, the installment centers on a makeover led by Cory’s and Topanga’s teenage daughter and her friends. “In an effort to make an odd girl more appealing to Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis), Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) remake her in their image,” reads the description. “But Farkle shows everyone that true beauty comes from within.”
Quoted from People.com,
We posted a a while back about new information on Danielle’s book and her amazing cover shoot (she’s so gorgeous!).
Normally, This Would be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness will be out on September 9, 2014!
Rowan wasn’t aware that Disney was releasing the trailer and she said below:
“The reaction has been pretty incredible and there are a few lines in there really about passing the torch from the old show to the new show,” she told OK! at the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem ride opening at Universal Studios. “I think Boy Meets World fans really appreciate that. The response has been overwhelming. It blew up and I was at breakfast, I had no idea they were releasing it. I checked Twitter and someone was like, ‘Nice 30 second trailer,’ and I was like, ‘There’s no such thing as a 30 second trailer.’ I didn’t realize—I had no idea it was coming out! It was pretty amazing.”
She also has seen some of the finished product of the show:
“I’ve seen quite a few episodes of the show and we do live tapings so we get to see a little bit of what we’ve been working on,” she says. “I feel what’s so great about the show is the messages are so relevant. Every episode is a life lesson. Ben and Danielle are so incredible and I think it’s truly a joy to work on.”

World, get ready to meet the kids!
We fell in love with Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel when ABC’s smash ’90s series Boy Meets World premiered. And now, more than 20 years later, it’s time for a brand new generation of TV-lovers to get to know the Matthews family in Girl Meets World, the Disney Channel’s highly anticipated new comedy series from Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs.
So are the Matthews kids ready to step into their parent’s spotlights? “It’s such a legacy that it hasn’t even hit me yet that we’re apart of such a big, colossal thing,” Blanchard told E! News at the premiere of the all-new Despicable Me ride at Universal Studios.

Experience From Gabby
I had the privilege of attending Thursday’s taping of Girl Meets World. It was my first taping…ever! And like thousand of 90′s kids in America, I grew up watching Boy Meets World.
I was a little skeptical when I heard they were gonna do a spin-off of the show, but I was sold entirely as I left the studio Thursday night.
Experience From Song
Hey guys my name is Song. I went to the Girl Meets World live taping show last night with my friend and had a fun time. The announcer was funny. He gave people prizes with special talents like singing, dancing, and other talents and the show was funny as well. This episode was called “Girl Meets Flaws” and was about Farkle Minkus being bullied by one of his class mates. The next day when Farkle didn’t show up in class Riley asked her dad to leave the classroom to look for Farkle. In Riley’s room in the apartment, Cory comes in the room to tell Lucas, Maya, and Riley that they have one day to find the person who was bullying Farkle. When Cory notices that Lucas was in the room he yells “Get out!”, so Lucas went out the window and Cory grabs one of his shoes, then Riley takes it away from her dad with a face expression. I thought that was one of the funniest part of this whole episode. In this episode Danny McNulty the actor that plays as Harley Keiner returns as a school janitor talking to Farkle, Maya, Lucas, and Riley on how he used to be the mean bully in the old days. Harley called Cory “Johnny Baboon” also. For people wondering how Harley got the job as a school janitor, Cory gave him the job but I’m not sure if we will see him a lot. I had a fun experience attending to the Girl Meets World live taping show, I would definitely go again! Here are my pictures with Michael Jacobs and on the set after the show.
