Kenya Barris Lands ABC Comedy ‘Bright Futures’

Business is booming for Kenya Barris!  The Black-ish creator has reportedly teamed up with three writers from his upcoming spinoff Grown-ish for Bright Futures, a 20-somethings comedy, which has landed at ABC via ABC Studios.

Written by Hale Rothstein and the team of Danny Segal and Isaac Schamis, Bright Futures revolves around a group of friends who are stumbling through the transition from the clueless, immature 20-somethings they are now, to the successful professionals they have the potential to be.

Barris will executive produce through his production company Khalabo Ink Society, which is under a rich overall deal at ABC Studios, alongside Rothstein.

Barris is a writer, producer, and creator of numerous television shows, including the critically acclaimed show Black-ish, briefly also co-executive producing the TV series The Game. Barris also co-created and produced America’s Next Top Model with Tyra Banks. He is author of This Is Basic Sh*t: Uncensored Thoughts from a Black Dude about Stuff We Know and Are Shocked You Don’t to be this fall.
