Rihanna is bringing her Styled To Rock TV show to the US. The production - which sees designers battle it out to create a stage outfit for the singing star - was axed after one series on Sky Living in the UK, but the "Diamonds" singer will now partner with the Style Network to resurrect it in the US.
"Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career. I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work," she said in a statement.
The UK show was hosted by Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts, but the celebrity line-up has yet to be announced for the new show. Rihanna herself only appeared in three episodes before it was dropped after failing to draw in enough viewers and production crew also blamed the hectic schedule of the pop stars who took part for causing problems.
Former Boy Meets World star Ben Savage confirmed that not only did the Disney spin-off get greenlit, but he and co-star Danielle Fishel will be returning to star in it.
"I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The Boy Meets World sequel is officially happening!" the 32 year-old wrote on his Twitter.
The spin-off, titled Girl Meets World will see Savage's and Fishel's characters Corey and Topanga as parents to Riley, who will face challenges and the experiences of growing up - much like the original show. "[They will reprise their roles] this time as a happily married couple and parents to 13-year-old Riley," a Disney representative further confirmed.
There's no word yet as to whether any of the other original cast members - Rider Strong, Will Friedle, and Bill Daniels - will also return.

Kanye West reportedly wants Kim Kardashian to quit her reality TV show.
The rapper has made appearances in Keeping Up with the Kardashians but doesn't want to be seen in the series again. The hip-hop star thinks Kim should walk away from the program that made her famous and take her career in a different direction.
"Kanye doesn't want to film the show anymore. And he doesn't want Kim to do reality TV either. He's pushing her to stop. Kanye wants to be in control of his image, not at the mercy of show producers. The Kardashian show hurts his cool image," a source said.
Kim, 32, appears in the show with her mother Kris Jenner, stepfather Bruce Jenner, sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, brother Rob Kardashian, and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The series is hugely popular and although Kim is considering taking her boyfriend's career advice, she is worried how her mother Kris - who is also her manager - may react if she left the show. "If Kanye persuades Kim to leave reality TV, Kris will hate him for it. It will rob her family of their income," the source explained.

Oprah Winfrey has given Rihanna's reunion with Chris Brown her blessing. The chat show queen - who recently interviewed the "Diamonds" singer on her show Oprah's Next Chapter about her relationship with the R&B singer who assaulted her in 2009 - praised the pop princess for being able to forgive him.
"You know what I loved about that interview is that she came with a big, wide open heart. She was in the space of forgiveness. And that she learned a lesson, that she was repeating with Chris Brown exactly what she needed to learn from her father," she told Extra.
During their interview in August, Rihanna spoke about her memories of her father Ronald Fenty being physically abusive to her mother and how she learned to forgive him. Oprah said she does not think less of the popstar for reuniting with Chris: "I think that if she is prepared to deal with that and is prepared to help him help himself then so be it. I have no judgment whatsoever. If that's how you choose to lead your life, that's really okay."
Christina Hendricks "hates" to think about Mad Men ending. The flame-haired actress - who plays Joan Holloway in the 60s-set TV show, which was recently renewed for a sixth season - claims the program has "completely changed" her career and she doubts she will ever find a job she loves as much.
"It's completely changed my career. Instead of people wondering who you are, you walk in and they say, 'I love your show.' It's a nice way to start an audition. I hate to think of it ever finishing. I have concerns about finding something I'm going to fall in love with as much."
However, Christina - who is married to actor Geoffrey Arend - is looking forward to other projects and spending some time with her husband: "I've got a couple of things lined up for the next break, and I hope to enjoy my home and husband."
Christina, 37, was "smitten" with Geoffrey when she first met him because of his sense of humor. "It just became very obvious to me, I was smitten. He makes me laugh and he's my best friend and I would always rather be with him than not, so those are pretty good indications."
AMC's popular zombie drama series The Walking Dead returns this Fall for its third season with new characters whose small screen arrivals have been eagerly anticipated by the comic book's fans since the series first aired.

A big bad of the upcoming season, executive producer Greg Nicotero reveals that the Governor on the show will still surprise fans of the comic: "It's very different from what you know of the character from the graphic novel, with the long stringy hair."
