Ludacris to executive-produce Netflix's new animated series, 'Karma's World'


Hip-hop dad Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is set to executive-produce Netflix’s new animated series, Karma’s World, inspired by his 19-year-old daughter, Karma.

According to a press release, the series follows Karma Grant, an aspiring musician and rapper with big talent and an even bigger heart. The deeply empathetic 10-year-old is ready to change with world with her empowering rhymes and signature songwriting skills.

As an executive producer, Ludacris is grateful for the 40-episode series that was “10 years in the making” and will be part of the legacy he leaves for his daughter.

“This is how legacies are built,” he wrote on Instagram of the series. “It was important to me to provide a positive @StrongBlackLead to show our youth that there are many ways to overcome difficult situations, and that their dreams no matter how big are possible! I’m looking forward to finally being able to share what I’ve been working on behind the scenes for so many years!”

Karma’s World will feature original songs about creativity, self-esteem, family and friendships and other age-appropriate topics from Ludacris, songwriter James Bennett Jr. and co-producer Gerald Keys.
