Rapper/actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges is throwing his hat into the animated series game! Netflix has announced that Ludacris, 9 Story Media Group, and Karma’s World Entertainment will be producing a new CG animated series, Karma’s World. This series was created by multi-award-winning American rapper, actor, producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Ludacris.
The storyline for Karma’s World follows 10-year-old Karma Grant, who is an aspiring musical artist and rapper. She is smart, resilient, and deeply empathetic, who puts her all into her songwriting. While she is pursuing her dreams, she is just starting to understand the emotional power that words and music can have.
“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,” says Ludacris in a written 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. This project has been a long time in the making and I can’t wait to bring Karma’s World to the entire world.”
Angela Santomero, chief creative officer for 9 Story Media Group says, “It has been an absolute privilege to work with Chris to bring his vision of Karma to life. 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. 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.”
The animated series is geared toward children ages 6-9 and is a coming of age story about a young Black girl finding her voice and using it to change her world. Karma’s World is inspired by Ludacris’ oldest daughter, Karma, and based on the interactive educational website of the same name created by Karma’s World Entertainment back in 2009.
