Cory in the House is an American television comedy show, which had premiered on January 12, 2007 on the Disney Channel and is a spin-off from the Disney show That's So Raven. The show focuses on Cory Baxter, who moved from San Francisco, Californiamarker to Washington, D.C.marker, after Victor Baxter gets a new job in the White Housemarker as the official head chef. The series marks a Disney Channel first, as it is the channel's first spin-off.


The first episode on January 12, 2007 was a sneak peek. The show was created by Marc Warren and Dennis Rinsler, who first produced Full House, then, since 2005, produced That's So Raven. Cory in the House began filming on July 18, 2006 at Hollywood Center Studiosmarker (where The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and That's So Raven were filmed), and uses a studio audience in some scenes. Reruns of Cory in the House still air on Disney Channel. J-4 teen magazine has reported that it has been offically confirmed by a Disney Channel spokesperson that production has wrapped on Cory In The House, but, "We still have episodes that will air." No new episodes have been announced as of 2009.

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 show centers upon Cory Baxter (Kyle Massey), who had moved from San Francisco, Californiamarker to Washington, D.C.marker, after his father Victor Baxter (Rondell Sheridan) gets a new job in the White Housemarker as the official head White Housemarker chef. Cory's best friends are Newt Livingston (Jason Dolley), the son of the Chief Justice and a U.S. senator, and Meena Paroom (Maiara Walsh), daughter to the Bahavian Ambassador. Thus, Cory begins a new life.

He quickly develops a short-phased crush on Meena, created a band (DC3) and meets the pest of the plot, Jason "Stickler"(Jake Thomas), the CIA's top spy's son who stalks in the shadow of Meena. Cory is often irritated by the President's daughter, Sophie Martinez (Madison Pettis), and he's also often disciplined by the President's assistant, Samantha Samuels (Lisa Arch), but he gets along well with the President, Richard Martinez (John D'Aquino), while dealing with his new-found everyday challenges.

Theme song and opening sequence

The theme song to "Cory in the House", was written and produced by Matthew Gerard and Robbie Nevil, and performed by Kyle Massey and Maiara Walsh (though the closing credits of the show credit the performance of the theme song only to Massey). An alternate theme song "Rollin' to D.C." is also sung by Massey and Walsh and was used in the music video to promote the series.

Unlike the live-action sitcoms on Disney Channel that were made from 2003 to 2006, the opening credits of Cory in the House did not use clips from the show in the sequence and also were not updated for the second season, instead keeping the same credits as those used in the first season. Lizzie McGuire and Even Stevens also used the same opening credit sequence for both of their series runs, and those series along with recent series Wizards of Waverly Place, JONAS and Sonny with a Chance also do not include clipsfrom the show in the opening credits. It is also the first Disney Channel sitcom to include the Disney logo above the series title logo (until 2007, only Disney Channel's animated series only included the logo above the title logo), which was added to the title after the first few episodes (however, all Disney Channel series that do this leave out the "'s" at the end of the Disney logo, so if the title is read in its entirety it would be read as Disney Cory in the House instead of Disney's Cory in the House).
