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.

“I do a wash out that lasts like, eight washes. They do that every week-and-a-half to two weeks,” Vanessa says.

And she liked the color so much, that she “asked if they could do more pink, and they said yes, and I’ve been getting pinker and pinker.”

There’s nothing they can do, even if they say they’re going to do something, there’s nothing they can do. You need to speak up, you need to speak out, not only for yourself, but for other young women that feel threatened, not only in this industry, but in other industries.”

FYI: Rowan is wearing Repossi jewelry. Storm is wearing a Ji Oh outfit and Rebecca Minkoff boots.

Yara Shahidi & Chloe X Halle Share Their Thoughts on the World in 2018 (Video)

Yara Shahidi sat down with Chloe X Halle to discuss their new music and the power of this generation’s youth.

The Grown-ish co-stars – who “felt like sisters automatically” when they first met – shared their inspirational message in a new video for ASOS.

“The theme of this whole album is just youth empowerment and reminding us how we are important, the kids are alright,” the R&B duo says. “We’re the future.”

“This year has been eye-opening,” they continue. “Basking in the goodness of the world and then boom, you’re hit with something that’s just like, ‘Wow, we just took 10 steps back as people, as a community, as what we’re supposed to be, as a united family.’”

Yara then asked the sisters to describe 2018 in one word, and they had a beautiful response.
