The network has been planning a spin-off of ABC’s famous show Fresh Off The Boat which follows the lives of a Taiwanese-American family in Florida in the 1990s. It revolves around the Huangs, a Taiwanese-American family comprising parents named Louis and Jessica, their children Eddie, Emery, and Evan, and Louis’s mother, Jenny. Preity Zinta and Vir Das are set to guest star in an episode of ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat as Indian parents.

The episode has expectations to serve as the basis for the spin-off show. According to an international publication, the new episode will get shot next month and will include an Indian family whose daughter attends school with Eddie.
Zinta’s last release was the 2018 Bhaiaji Superhit. Das recently featured in ABC’s Whiskey Cavalier. In the show’s episode, Preity Zinta will act as the girl’s mother Meena, while Vir Das will play the role of her father, DC. The two actors’ role in the episode has expectations to lead up to the spin-off show, tentatively titled Magic Motor Inn. Rachna Fruchbom, who has frequently written episodes of Fresh Off The Boat, is also planning to write for the spin-off. The ABC series is currently running the course in its sixth season.
