Raven-Symoné is leaving The View by year’s end to develop a spinoff of her comedy series “That’s So Raven” for Disney Channel, Variety has learned.
The plot: Raven is now a divorced mother with a preteen son and daughter. She finds out one of them has her “gift” which she knows will lead to lots of misunderstandings.
“Raven’s brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel’s success around the world. Her performance in ‘That’s So Raven’ is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we’re looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family,” said Adam Bonnett, exec VP of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide.
