Yara Shahidi the breakout star from ABC’s Black-ish, is getting her own spin-off. After filming a pilot, it’s moving closer to getting the greenlight, but it won’t be on ABC; instead, the show will air on Freeform, Disney’s cable network aimed squarely at the millennial set.
Shahidi’s character Zoey Johnson will be heading to college in the new show. Sound familiar? The show “A Different World” which was the spin off from “The Cosby Show” is where Denise Huxtable (played by Lisa Bonet) went off to college.
The pilot (as yet untitled), for the new sit-com was reportedly well received at Disney. But executives thought it might skew too young for the big network but perfect for those millennials they want to watch Freeform.
