The potential spinoff, written by Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom, is in early stages of development at Fotb studio 20th Century Fox TV, now part of Disney Television Studios. Dels for the project are still being hammered out, and it is yet to be pitched to ABC.
Playing off the title, the offshoot is said to feature a new immigrant family, likely from another country. Fruchbom, who is under an overall deal at 20th TV, would be writing and executive producing. Fotb executive producers Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar also are expected to serve as exec producers.
Fresh Off the Boat may be nearing the end of its run on ABC. Most TV cast contracts are up after six seasons,
