Kenya Barris Recruits Rashida Jones For A New Netflix Series
Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is gearing up to drop a new Netflix series starring Rashida Jones.
“Black Excellence”, aims to spice up the family sitcom medium. Barris also stars and will produce under his Khalabo Ink Society banner as part of his overall deal with Netflix and a writers room for the single-camera comedy launched last week.
Barris describing Black Excellence as a “passion venture” between himself and Jones in an Instagram post:

MAN!!!! I’m soooooo nervously excited and PROUD to announce this project that has been a LOOOONG thought out passion venture between me and my AMAZINGLY talented friend and partner @rashidajones. There’s NO ONE else I would have wanted to go on this ride with and NOBODY else crazy (and SUPER smart) enough to do it. I don’t know what this next chapter will bring but I do know that I LOVE all of the people in my life who have supported me and I promise to try and not let you down. #dreamingawake #blessed #lookkidsitsdaddy #blackish #blackexcellenceNETFLIX
Back in September, Barris gave fans some insight on what moved him to leave ABC for Netflix.
If this show is anything like what he’s given us in the past then we’re all here for it.
