The series, which comes from Kenya Barris, is a spinoff of ABC family comedy “Black-ish,” centered on eldest Johnson daughter Zoey (Yara Shahidi) as she navigates collegiate life. With stories told through a millennial lens, the show explores a wide berth of social, political and relationship issues facing students in the world of higher education.
“At Freeform, our shows are uncompromising and bullish on what’s possible when young adults are empowered to be themselves and share their voice about the things that define them and their generation,” said Tom Ascheim, president of Freeform.
The series also stars Trevor Jackson, Francia Raisa, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, Luka Sabbat and Deon Cole.
