Kenya Barris and Kid Cudi have set an adult animated music series at Netflix with an added twist.

The series will be based on Cudi’s upcoming album, “Entergalactic,” which is set to be released by Republic Records. The series will showcase music from the new album, which is said to follow a young man on his journey to discover love.

Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, will star in, write and executive produce the series with Ian Edelman also writing and executive producing. Barris will executive produce under his Khalabo Ink Society banner, which is currently set up under an overall deal at Netflix.

He is also set to write, executive produce, and star in a comedy series titled “Black Excellence” opposite Rashida Jones.
