Yara Shahidi & Francia Raisa's New Show 'grown-ish' Was Based Off A Twitter Meme

The cast of grown-ish gather up for a group shot at a screening event for the show in Los Angeles on Wednesday (December 13).

Yara Shahidi, Trevor Jackson, Francia Raisa, Halle Bailey, Chloe Bailey, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat and Chris Parnell gathered with creator Kenya Barris to chat about the show — which was actually inspired by a meme!

“I saw a meme one day and it said, ‘Where would Zoey go to college?’ I was like, ‘This is a f—ing show.’ That was my lightbulb moment,” Kenya told Variety.

He adds that the show will be tackling all issues that college students face during their tenure: “We wanted to make sure we gave as honest an experience of what this walk is as possible. This is a generation with a lot to say.”

“The one thing my generation is good at is finding a model for success,” Yara says.

grown-ish will debut on Wednesday, January 3rd on Freeform.

FYI: Yara is wearing a Claudia Li outfit.
