In an article by The Hollywood Reporter about the Black-ish’ creator Kenya Barris’ exit from ABC Studios, there have been some details on the pilot “Unit Zero”, which Toni Collette shot last year for the network: “In addition to Black-ish, [Barris] has developed multiple projects for the network but landed only one series pickup: spinoff Grown-ish, which was originally developed for ABC. Grown-ish was one of three projects Barris developed for ABC in 2017. Politically themed family comedy Libby and Malcolm, starring Felicity Huffman and Courtney B. Vance with a script from Barris, was considered a frontrunner to go to series given its timely premise of two politically divided pundits who fall in love, but ABC passed. The network also went to pilot on Toni Collette CIA drama Unit Zero, a passion project for Barris who described it as the “type of drama television I love doing. It pulls back the curtain on what it’s like to be a woman in a historically male-dominated field and it shows underrepresented voices.” It also did not go to series.” So, say goodbye to “Unit Zero”, you can still check out a couple of on-set pictures from March 2017.
