Yara Shahidi Gets ‘Black-Ish’ Spinoff
Good news for “Black-ish” fans!
ABC has greenlit a spinoff of the top-rated show starring Yara Shahidi and Deon Cole. Yara’s new show, “College-ish” will follow Zoey as she journeys to college and figures out life after leaving home. The show will focus on issues facing students and administration in today’s higher learning settings.
The show will appear on FreeForm. Black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris tells Deadspin he couldn’t be happier about the new show:
“I never thought they’d let me put Black-ish on the air, let alone give me a spin-off. I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to continue working with Yara and the rest of this talented young cast. To any aspiring writers struggling to make it out there, I highly advise adding an ‘-ish’ to any working title you might have. It seems to be the move.”
