Cory in the House is an American children's television series, which debuted January 12, 2007 on Disney Channel, spin-off from That's So Raven. The series focuses on Cory Baxter, who had moved from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C., after Victor Baxter gets a new job in the White House as the official head White House chef, and Disney Channel's idea was to give Cory a new look, still keeping his love of money. The series marks a Disney Channel first, as it is the first ever Disney Channel spin-off.


The pilot episode, The New Kid in Town, was released on iTunes for free on the week of January 2, 2007. Disney Channel UK showed the first episode on January 26, 2007 as a sneak peek. The theme song, "Cory in the House," is sung by Kyle Massey and Maiara Walsh. An alternate theme song, "Rollin' to D.C.," is also sung by Massey and Walsh and is used in the music video for the series.

The show was created by Dennis Rinsler, who produced That's So Raven. Cory in the House began filming on July 18, 2006 at Hollywood Center Studios (where The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and That's So Raven were filmed), and uses a studio audience in some scenes.

Much like Hannah Montana, many of the episode titles are parodies of popular songs. For example, We Built This Kitty on Rock and Roll comes from We Built This City, Mall of Confusion from Ball of Confusion, Smells Like School Spirit from Smells Like Teen Spirit, and Ain't Miss Bahavian from Ain't Misbehavin'.

The high school which Cory Baxter, Newton Livingston, and Meena Paroom attend has also been used for the sitcom Boy Meets World. The show's premiere night had 7.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched Disney pilot episode.

Cory In The House continued airing episodes on Disney Channel. It was said by Disney Channel that Cory In The House would finish airing episodes in 2009. The series ending was supposed to feature the original That's so Raven cast.
