Ludacris is bringing a new animated series to Netflix. “Karma’s World” is inspired by his oldest daughter Karma and “is a coming-of-age story about a young Black girl finding her voice and using it to change her world,” reports Deadline.
The series, which will feature forty 11-minute episodes, will follow Karma’s journey as she tries to become a rapper. She wants to change the world with her music.
“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,” the Fast & Furious actor said. “‘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,” Luda continued. “This project has been a long time in the making and I can’t wait to bring ‘Karma’s World’ to the entire world.”
According to the outlet, the series will feature original songs that will address issues such as body positivity, creativity, self-esteem, discrimination, leadership, expressing emotions, family, friendship, celebrating differences and more.
Ludacris and James Bennett Jr. will create all sound design and songs for the show and Gerald Keys will produce them.
“It has been an absolute privilege to work with [Ludacris] to bring his vision of Karma to life,” said Angela Santomero, Chief Creative Officer for 9 Story Media Group. “Karma is a character who does not yet exist on kids’ TV. She is a powerful, empowering role model who uses her words and music to bring about change in her community.”
He continued, “Kids who watch ‘Karma’s World’ will be inspired to use creativity as a vehicle for self-expression, and the series furthers 9 Story’s commitment to creating diverse content for children that encourages them to find their voice and follow their dreams.”
