According to Variety, a US-based news outlet, Zakiyyah Alexander and Courtney Lilly, who took over as co-showrunners of the sitcom entering its fifth and current season, are replaced as showrunners of the 'Black-ish' spinoff by Doyle. Doyle has worked on the programme since its inception, initially as a co-executive producer and then, in Season 2, as an executive producer. Other projects he has worked on include 'Family Tools', 'The Great Indoors', 'Black-ish' and 'The Great Indoors'. CAA, Lit Entertainment Group, and Yorn Levine Barnes are his agents.

The focus had previously been on Yara Shahidi's character Zoey Johnson. The show also features Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, Daniella Perkins, Shahidi, and Scribner.
