black-ish's Zoey-Centric Spinoff May Find New Home on Freeform


Some college kids change majors. black-ish‘s Zoey is (maybe) changing networks.

The Yara Shahidi-led spinoff of the ABC comedy may end up on ABC’s sister network Freeform, our sister site Deadline reports.

The potential series’ backdoor pilot aired last Wednesday, when Dre and Bow’s oldest child attended her college orientation only to discover that her dad had forgotten to send in her housing application.

Per Deadline, the spinoff felt too young for ABC’s main audience but meshed well with Freeform’s youthful demographic, and the project is nearing a series order at the cable network.

In addition to Shahidi, the potential series’ cast includes Chris Parnell (Suburgatory) and Trevor Jackson (American Crime), with black-ish creator Kenya Barris executive-producing.
