black-ish spinoff (formerly college-ish) will now be called grown-ish and has cast three series regulars
Freeform, Disney‘s young adult television and streaming network has announced that the upcoming black-ish spinoff formerly known as college-ish will now be called grown-ish. In addition, Emily Arlook, Chris Parnell and Trevor Jackson have been announced as grown-ish series regulars.
Creator and executive producer Kenya Barris said, “grown-ish reflects what we’ll be dealing with in the show – that in-between place where you’re not quite an adult but facing grown world problems for the first time. Where black-ish examines what it means to be black, grown-ish is an examination of what it is and what it means to be grown.”
From black-ish executive producer Kenya Barris comes a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education. Yara Shahidi portrays Zoey – Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter – as she heads off to college and quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest. Yara is joined by black-ish‘s Deon Cole (Charlie) who portrays Charlie, Dre’s eccentric and unpredictable co-worker at Stevens & Lido. Zoey runs into Charlie during college orientation where she learns that he moonlights as an adjunct marketing professor. Arlook will portray Miriam, a freshman know-it-all at Southern California University with a no-holds-barred attitude. Parnell will portray the dean of Southern California University, and Jackson will portray a socially conscious sophomore at Southern California University.
Kenya Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland and Brian Dobbins are executive producers on grown-ish, from ABC Studios. The show was written by Kenya Barris and Larry Wilmore.
