  • Netflix has ordered Black Excellence, their first series project with Kenya Barris with Barris and Rashida Jones set to star.

  • Inspired by Barris’ irreverent, highly flawed, unbelievably honest approach to parenting, relationships, race, and culture, Black Excellence looks to pull the curtain back and reboot the “family sitcom” in a way we’ve never seen before.

 

  • Barris and Jones will executive produce alongside Hale Rothstein (black-ish, grown-ish). The single-camera comedy will be produced through Barris’ production company, Khalabo Ink Society, under the multi-hyphenate’s overall series deal with the streamer.

 

  • Black Excellence marks Barris’ first series with Netflix since making the streamer his home less than a year ago. Barris hasn’t been shy about his desire to flip the family sitcom and what it looks like on its head; and with the series officially launching its writers room last month, he is wasting little time getting to work on exploring and pushing those boundaries.
