ABC Considering Yara Shahidi “Blackish Spinoff

Actress Yara Shahidi who hilariously plays Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross’ daughter on the show “Blackish” could be prepping for a HUGE opportunity.

There are currently rumors that her character Zoey will have a “Blackish” spinoff based on her college experience.

Deadline reports:

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, created by Barris and former Black-ish showrunner Larry Wilmore, 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.

Zoey — Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter — is a natural focal point for a new series as she is college-bound. This season, to bolster her applications, her dad got her an internship at Teen Vogue where she has excelled.
