Hollywood, CA – The Disney Channel has decided to reboot the award-winning show “That’s So Raven”. To the surprise of the entertainment world, the show’s star Raven-Symone will be replaced former ECW and WCW champion Raven.
Executive Producer Sean McNamara said of the change, “We wanted to take ‘That’s So Raven’ in a new and exciting direction. Raven-Symone was great, but she was missing that ‘it’ factor. We needed someone with an edge, someone who has seen things and done things that would make Gary Busey vomit in terror. Who better than Raven?”
Despite the casting change, the show will continue to focus on dealing with adolescent situations with human and teen fashion. Most of the supporting cast will return and guest spots are planned for former Flock members Lodi and Reese as Raven’s science and English teachers, respectively.
A pilot has already been filmed with a brief clip making it’s way online. In the scene, Raven’s dad Victor, played by the returning Rondell Sheridan, grounds him for staying out past curfew. Upset, Raven sits in the corner of his bright pink room and addresses the camera directly, saying, “I understand that my past transgressions may have upset the man that I refer to as father. Though I cannot comprehend this unconscionable and outlandish punishment, I must face it as I have faced everything in this world: Alone. I must pay for the sins of the father in this fortress of solitude and cannot go to Eddie’s party. It looks like it’s just you and me, stuffed bear. Quote the Raven ‘I’m totally bummed.'” Cue Laugh Track. End Scene.
