Chris Bridges says: We should celebrate our similarities and differences

Chris “Ludacris” Bridges said he hopes his TV show encourages children to “celebrate each other’s similarities and differences” thanks to the variety of characters in the animated series.

After finding success as rapper and songwriter Ludacris, Bridges turned to film, starring in the Fast And Furious franchise before creating Karma’s World, a Netflix children’s show.

Karma’s World is about a young girl named Karma Grant – inspired by Bridges’ own daughter – who dreams of becoming a rapper.

Speaking ahead of the release of Karma’s World series two, Bridges, 44, told the PA news agency how important he feels “inclusion” on the show.

“Inclusion and people can identify themselves around the world no matter where they are,” he said.

“You know, and I think that’s great because that’s the world we live in today. And that’s the reality, and that’s when people are taught to love each other, to honor each other’s similarities and differences. “

The first series of Karma’s World was released on Netflix in October 2021 and reached the top 10 on Netflix Kids in 42 countries.

Thanks to its diverse cast and diverse storyline, Karma’s World has received nominations for three National Association for the Advancement of Color (NAACP) awards in the US.

The NAACP Awards honor outstanding performances in film, television, theatre, music and literature.

Bridges talked about how his daughter – also named Karma – influenced the eponymous character on the show and how her life experience took shape during the World of Karma storyline.

He told PA: “I know that if it happens to her, it can happen to children all over the world, and to share some of the stories and experiences she went through that I know other kids go through it too. That’s why people, I feel, love the show so much. ”

The plot from the show’s first series includes 10-year-old Karma struggling with liking and understanding its name and meaning, as well as learning to love her afro hair.

Bridges explained that before creating the show’s storylines, he sat down with 20-year-old Karma to discuss how they should be presented to ensure they were as relevant and realistic as possible.

He said: “You know, just to get the memories back and try to get as close to what happened in real life as possible. And we, you know, we endorse the stories and make sure we remember all the details and then put it on this show. ”

In the hit Netflix series, Karma is voiced by actress Asiahn Bryant while Bridges is the voice of Conrad Grant, the father of Karma.

Following the success of season one, Bridges said that he’s particularly nervous about the release of season two because he’s “delivering more of what people already love”.

“A wise man once said when you stop worrying, you stop caring.

“So I’m totally nervous, but in a good way because I know we’re delivering more of what people already love and I can’t wait to bring it to the world because we work.” very hard work,” he said.

Series two of Karma’s World was released on Netflix on March 10.
