Ludacris continues to cement his status as an entertainment machine following the announcement that Netflix has ordered 40 episodes at 11 minutes each of his 'Karma's World' children's animated series.
Inspired by his oldest daughter Karma, the show has been "10 years in the making," according to a tweet from executive producer Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Bridges. "THIS IS HOW LEGACIES ARE BUILT!"
'Karma's World' documents the life and ambition of 10-year-old Karma, a young Black girl, as she finds her voice as an artist and rapper in a creative space often dominated by men and aims to use her music to "change the world."
With supervision from Luda, the show will include original songs addressing topics like self-esteem, celebrating differences, discrimination and more. These kinds of messages will surely resonate far beyond the target audience of kids aged 6-9.
"I’ve had a lot of accomplishments in my life, but everything that I’ve experienced seems to have led up to this point to where I can leave a legacy for all my daughters," Ludacris said in a statement. "Karma’s World is one of those legacies. I hope this series will show kids that there are many ways to overcome difficult situations.
"This show is going to move hip-hop culture forward, and show young girls that they have the power to change the world." That's fire!
Production will be handled by Luda's Karma's World Entertainment and 9 Story Media Group. No timetable for the premiere has been shared.
