The series is produced by Bridges' company Karma's World Productions as well as 9 Story Media Group and Brown Bag Films. The show was inspired by Bridges' eldest daughter Karma and the Karma's World website, also created by Bridges' company. Bridges said in a statement how he hopes the show will inspire young viewers to use their words and voices for good.
“I’m so proud of Karma’s World, which was inspired by my oldest daughter Karma. It’s about a girl who wants to bring positivity to the world through her music, and each episode draws on real-life situations faced by kids today," he said. "We see Karma use her voice to help her family, friends and community, demonstrating the power young people have to create change. I truly believe that every single person on this earth has the power to change the world for the better – just like Karma! It is important to me that kids and families around the world will identify with Karma’s World, and my goal for the show is to help spread positivity, inspire self confidence in our children, and bring the world together through music.”
