Jan 20, 2017  •  Post A Comment

ABC has a spinoff in the works for its well-received comedy series “black-ish,” with the show’s creator and executive producer Kenya Barris working with ABC Studios on the project, Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva reports.

The new show “would be toplined by ‘Black-ish’ co-star Yara Shahidi and focus on her character Zoey Johnson in college,” Andreeva notes, adding: “I hear the idea is for the potential new comedy series, created by Barris and former ‘Black-ish’ showrunner Larry Wilmore, to be introduced as a backdoor pilot episode on ‘Black-ish’ this spring.”

The talks are said to be in the early stages, with no script and no deals yet in place.
