Get ready to head to college with the daughter from the hit sitcom Black-ish in Freeform’s spin-off series, Grown-ish.
The new series is 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 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.
The series comes from Kenya Barris, Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Helen Sugland, E. Brian Dobbins and Julie Bean who serve as executive producers.
Starring Yara Shahidi (Black-ish), Trevor Jackson (Black-ish), Jordan Buhat, Emily Arlook (The Good Place), Francia Raisa (The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Deon Cole (Black-ish), and Chris Parnell.
Grown-ish premieres today on Freeform at 8/7c
