Cory Baxter is in the house – the White House, that is -- in the sitcom "Cory in the House." With his father Victor recently ensconced as the official chef at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and his mom and his sister Raven away at school, it's the start of a brand new life for the Baxter boy. But despite sharing an address with the First Family and attending an upper-crust prep school, Cory is still the same lovable go-getter who has a few rather ambitious "entrepreneurial" schemes up his sleeve. While he learns to navigate the politics of his new school, The White House, on the other hand, may never be the same.

In "Cory in the House," the first ever series spin-off for the Disney Channel, Kyle Massey reprises his role as Cory Baxter, better known to millions of fans of the hit comedy "That's So Raven" as Raven's irrepressible younger brother. This time, Cory finds himself living large in Washington, DC where his father Victor (Rondell Sheridan, also reprising his "Raven" role) now oversees the presidential kitchen.

On "Cory in the House," Cory sees life in the White House as the business opportunity of a lifetime and he wastes no time trying to schmooze Washington power brokers and the President himself in order to advance his endless entrepreneurial ideas. But his new situation is going to take some getting used to. For starters, he has to contend with the president's precocious – and at times downright diabolical – eight-year-old daughter Sophie as well as his own insecurity about being a "scholarship student" at an elite private school.

Eager to impress his classmates, especially the beautiful and sophisticated Meena Paroom (an ambassador's daughter), Cory tries to pass himself off as a rich kid on "Cory in the House." But when his real identity is inevitably exposed, he's relieved to find that his peers actually accept him for who he really is. In addition to Meena, Cory befriends Newt Livingston, the charismatic guitar-playing scion of a political dynasty, and finds himself vying for Meena's attention against Jason Stickler, a junior high G-man already following in the footsteps of his CIA chief father.

With the help of his new friends on "Cory in the House," Cory keeps the White House staff on its toes while at the same time, his new environment helps him learn that even teens have the ability to make the world a better place.

Starring in "Cory in the House" are Kyle Massey as Cory Baxter, Rondell Sheridan as Victor Baxter (both actors reprise their role after starring in 100 episodes of the hit "That's So Raven"), Jason Dolley as Newt, Madison Pettis as Sophie, Maiara Walsh as Meena, Jake Thomas as Jason Stickler, John D'Aquino as President Martinez and Lisa Arch as Samantha.
