Kenya Barris & Rashida Jones Announce New Netflix Venture "Black Excellence"


Kenya Barris has announced his new project with Netflix since announcing a new series with the likes of Rashida Jones. Black Excellence is said "to pull the curtain back and reboot the 'family sitcom,'" and is dubbed as a single-camera comedy. Kenya shared the news on Instagram calling it a "passion venture" that's been in the making for some time. 

"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," he wrote.

"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."

Kenya, who ended his working relationship with ABC, recently spoke on the matter and one of the reasons he cut ties. “Because fuck Roseanne," he said. "She’s a fuckin’ monster. And they were like, ‘Why is this monster killing villagers?’ And I was like, ‘Because that’s what a monster does.’”
