Jackee Harry Joins Girl Meets World Pilot
Jackee Harry has joined the cast of the Boy Meets World spin-off, the Huffington Post reports.
Details about the role are being kept under wraps, but it could put Harry, who was the first African American to win an Emmy for supporting comedy actress for her performance on 227, in familiar territory. Harry also co-starred on ABC's Sister, Sister, which, like Boy Meets World, was a part of the network's TGIF lineup.
Fall TV Scorecard: Renewed or canceled?
The spin-off, Girl Meets World, focuses on Cory and Topanga's daughter, Riley. Original series stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel signed on for the spin-off pilot shortly after it was first announced and Fishel tweeted that they were both helping cast their TV daughter, who will be played by Rowan Blanchard (Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D, The Back-Up Plan).
If the pilot is picked up to series by Disney Channel, it would debut sometime during the 2013-2014 schedule.
