Raven-Symoné — “The Cosby Show” kid who grew up to be a big voice on “The View” — is moving from New York to Los Angeles for another Disney project.
Variety said the actress born Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman is leaving the ABC talk show in the next couple months to develop a spinoff of her comedy series “That’s So Raven” for Disney Channel.
“Symoné will relocate from New York City to Los Angeles for the spinoff, in which she’s set to star and serve as an executive producer,” Variety said. “She will reprise her role as the psychic Raven Baxter, who was last seen as a teenager on the show that ran on Disney Channel from 2003 to 2007.”
Variety added that with eight co-hosts rotating through “The View,” it’s unlikely Symoné, 30, will be replaced.
