The Magic Motor Inn - Fresh Off the Boat Spinoff Centered on Indian Family Not Going Forward at ABC

The Fresh Off the Boat offshoot was set up as a potential backdoor pilot episode of FOTB this past season, the project, tentatively titled Magic Motor Inn, was written by Rachna Fruchbom, and centers around an Indian family whose daughter attends school with Eddie. The plated spinoff episode guests starred Preity Zinta and Vir Das as the parents.

“The Fresh off the Boat spinoff that was developed this season did not ultimately come together. I think, in a way that the teams wanted to, so it is not at the moment moving forward,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke told Deadline in an interview tied to the network’s announcement of the 2020-21 schedule.

While this particular iteration is not going forward, I hear there is still enthusiasm for the general spinoff idea.
