American Crime and Burning Sands star Trevor Jackson, “Saturday Night Live” vet Chris Parnell and “Veep” actor Matt Walsh have joined Yara Shahidi in ABC’s proposed “Black-ish” spinoff, reports Deadline.
Their episode will serve as a backdoor pilot for the potential spinoff, which centers on Shahidi’s character Zoey Johnson — Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) popular, stylish and socially active 17-year-old daughter — as she heads to college.
Parnell and Walsh are reportedly playing college administrators, while Jackson is a freshman at the college Zoey will be attending.
The spinoff episode has been filmed and airs this spring.
Parnell and Jackson have series regular options if the project moves forward. Walsh, who is a regular on HBO’s “Veep,” is a guest star/potential recurring.
