"I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids," creator Michael Jacobs said in as statement when the show was announced. "Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular."
