“Black-ish” Spin-Off Reportedly Close to Being Picked Up at Freeform

Back in January it was reported that ABC was developing a spin-off of their hit sitcom Black-ish that would revolve around Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) as she navigates college. Now The Hollywood Reporter writes that the show is getting close to being picked up to series… but not on ABC. According to THR, following a decision by ABC brass that the show skewed too young to be a good fit for the network, Freeform has come forward as a potential home for the comedy, although a deal has yet to be finalized. Freeform denied to comment when asked by THR.
