BRIEF: ‘Boy Meets World’ Star Meets Style Network: Danielle Fishel to Host Weekly Show ‘The Dish’

By Zap2It, Chicago

Jul. 31--The Style Network is looking to cook up its own version of "The Soup," and it's tapped actress Danielle Fishel as its head chef.

The former "Boy Meets World" star will host a show called "The Dish," which will present a weekly look at what made news in the worlds of fashion, beauty and pop culture. It's scheduled to premiere Aug. 16.

"This show is a first of its kind for the Style Network, and we're thrilled to have Danielle as host," says Salaam Coleman Smith, executive VP at the network. "She combines passion for the style category with witty humor and playful fun.

"What's great about 'The Dish' is that it takes a not-so-serious look at the often very serious world of fashion and finds the comedy in celebrity lifestyles. Viewers can expect a very funny experience."

"The Dish" will be executive produced by Edward Boyd and K.P. Anderson, who developed "The Soup" for Style's sister network E!.

Fishel played Topanga on ABC's "Boy Meets World" from 1993-2000. Other credits include "National Lampoon's Dorm Daze" and guest spots on "Nikki" and "Yes, Dear."
