Kenya Barris, Pharrell developing Juneteenth musical movie at Netflix

Los Angeles, Jun 20 (PTI) Netflix is in discussions with 'Blackish' creator Kenya Barris and musician Pharell Williams for a musical film about Juneteenth.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the musical will be produced by Williams with partner Mimi Valdes, alongside Barris, who will produce through his production company Khalabo Ink Society.

Details about storyline are under wraps. However, the film is a separate project to the live musical that the duo had announced in 2018. PTI RB RB RB
