Chris Parnell Stars In ‘Black-ish’ Spinoff, Matt Walsh & Trevor Jackson Also Cast

Saturday Night Live alum Chris Parnell has booked a starring role opposite Yara Shahidi in ABC’s proposed Black-ish spinoff. Also cast in the episode of Black-ish, which serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential offshoot, are Veep’s Matt Walsh and young actor Trevor Jackson (ABC’s American Crime).

Created by Black-ish creator/executive producer Kenya Barris and former Black-ish showrunner Larry Wilmore, the spinoff centers on Shahidi’s Black-ish character Zoey Johnson — Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, entitled, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter — as she heads to college.

Parnell and Walsh are said to be playing college administrators, while Jackson is a freshman at the college Zoey will be attending. All three are guest stars in the planted spinoff episode of Black-ish, which has been filmed and airs this spring. Parnell and Jackson have series regular options if the project goes to series. Walsh, who is a regular on HBO’s Veep, is a guest star/potential recurring.

This marks Parnell’s return to ABC’s comedy block after co-starring on Suburgatory. He is repped by UTA and Rice Management. Walsh is repped by UTA, Principato-Young and attorney Lev Ginsburg.

In addition to the potential Black-ish offshoot, ABC has a 1990s The Goldbergs spinoff pilot starring Bryan Callen and Tim Meadows.

I love Black•ish but I hope this doesn't get picked up. It's just gonna end up a one and done anyway and blackish isn't really that big of a hit to warrant a spin off but if NBC can pump out 3 fukin Chicago spin offs to a show that's not even in syndication yet nor earning ratings that make 3 fuking spin offs seem like a good idea then whatever go for it abc.

At least if it doesn't work or gets canceled after 1 season she can come back. Say she "missed her family & wanted to move closer to home".

This show could be so dope if, like everyone said, it had more of a Different World vibe. There's a tremendous pool of young black talent they could have put around her to make the show dope and could have even bought back some of the old cast members as administrators..

A different world didnt take place at a HBCU at first. Debbie Allen revamped the show to make it that way, but the school was definitely mixed in season 1

bro

blackish is basically a "rebranding" of cosby show

its the 2017 millenial version

and what do you mean they went where cosby show would never


they had an epsidoe about the son taking drugs, they had an episode about unwed pregnancy, they had an episode about dsylexia, they had multiple epsiodes about empowering women

fukk you mean

dont compare the edgyness of 2017 to people actually touching on topics that matter in the 80's bro

I'm cool with them not going HBCU with it because then it would look just like the whole Cosby thing again. At least now you can keep some similarities while still making it your own.

Making her go to an HBCU takes away the premise of being black, in a mostly white environment. Her being a black girl going to probably a predominantly​ white school would keep the spirit of the original show.
