The ‘Black-ish’ creator and ‘Girls Trip’ writer had grown dissatisfied with the broadcast affiliated studio and, sources say, could join Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy at the streaming giant with a nine-figure overall deal.
It’s official: Black-ish showrunner and Girls Trip writer Kenya Barris is leaving his longtime home at ABC Studios as sources say he could become the next mega-producer to ink a nine-figure overall deal with Netflix.
Barris’ deal with ABC Studios will end in August as he and the studio have now negotiated his exit. Netflix, meanwhile, declined comment on a potential deal with the prolific writer-producer.
