Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones to star in Netflix series titled Black Excellence
The series, expected to be similar to Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, is said to 'pull the curtain back and reboot the family sitcom'
Renowned writer-producer Kenya Barris has reportedly started work on his first Netflix series, a single-camera comedy, titled Black Excellence.
Barris will star opposite Rashida Jones in the show, which is inspired by Barris' approach to parenting, relationships, race, and culture.
The series, expected to be similar to Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, is said to 'pull the curtain back and reboot the family sitcom'.
Barris will produce under his banner, Khalabo Ink Society, which is currently under an overall deal at Netflix. Barris and Jones will be the executive producers, alongside Hale Rothstein, who has previously collaborated with Barris on his Black-ish series.
Barris, recently, was in the news when he exited his deal at ABC Studios for a deal with Netflix. He was one of the several high-profile creators to make the move to the streaming service, with others being Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy.
