Audible Inc. announced a development deal with Kenya Barris and his production company, Khalabo Ink Society to create original scripted fiction, unscripted nonfiction, audio-documentary, and journalistic audio. Khalabo Ink Society has launched a dedicated audio content division in support of the deal.
Barris commented, “Audio is a space that I’ve been eager to explore and I’m beyond excited to be working with Audible as we expand Khalabo’s storytelling in this way. As a creator, the purpose of art has always been about starting conversations and I cannot wait to share new stories and ideas through audio, where conversation is the art.”
Khalabo Ink Society is a full-service creative agency that has worked on television, film, audio, music, and digital properties.
They worked on the Netflix original comedy #BlackAF, the variety sketch show Astronomy Club, and the multi-series “-ish” franchise, which includes the Peabody Award-winning sitcom black-ish and spin-off series Grown-ish, Mixed-ish and the recently green-lit Old-ish.
