Netflix has dropped a new trailer and key art for the highly anticipated CG musical animated series, Karma’s World, set to premiere October 15. Created by multi-award-winning American rapper, actor, producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges (Fast and Furious Franchise, Fear Factor, Crash), the show is being produced in partnership with Bridges’ production company, Karma’s World Entertainment, 9 Story Media Group, and Brown Bag Films.
The original series is a coming-of-age story about a young Black girl finding her voice and using it to change her world -- inspired by Bridges’ oldest daughter Karma and based on the interactive educational website of the same name created by Karma’s World Entertainment in 2009.
“I’m so proud of Karma’s World, which was inspired by my oldest daughter Karma,” shared Bridges. It’s about a girl who wants to bring positivity to the world through her music, and each episode draws on real-life situations faced by kids today. We see Karma use her voice to help her family, friends, and community, demonstrating the power young people have to create change. I truly believe that every single person on this earth has the power to change the world for the better – just like Karma! It is important to me that kids and families around the world will identify with Karma’s World, and my goal for the show is to help spread positivity, inspire self confidence in our children, and bring the world together through music.”
In the show, Karma Grant is an aspiring musical artist and rapper with big talent and an even bigger heart. Smart, resilient, and deeply empathetic, Karma pours her soul into songwriting, channeling her feelings into whip-smart rhymes with passion, courage, and her signature brand of humor. In this series, Karma is only beginning to grasp the incredible emotional power that words, and music can have. She doesn’t just want to share her music with the world...she wants to change the world with it!
The animated series will feature original songs focusing on issues such as self-esteem, body positivity, discrimination, creativity, expressing emotions, friendship, family, leadership, celebrating differences and more. Sound design and original music are created and supervised by Bridges and James Bennett Jr., and produced by Gerald Keys.
