A “Black-ish” spinoff starring Yara Shahidi is in the works at ABC.
According to Deadline, the spinoff, which is still in the very early stages of development, would be centered around Yara’s character, Zoey Johnson, in college.
ABC is looking to spin off its acclaimed family comedy Black-ish. I’ve learned that the network is working with series creator/executive producer Kenya Barris and ABC Studios on the project, which would be toplined by Black-ish co-star Yara Shahidi and focus on her character Zoey Johnson in college. I hear the idea is for the potential new comedy series to be introduced as a backdoor pilot episode on Black-ish this spring. Sources stress that talks for the spinoff are still in very early stages, with no script and deals in place.
I’m totally here for this!
It would be the like the “Cosby Show” spinoff, “A Different World,” which followed Denise Huxtable’s college experience.
