LOS ANGELES — Kenya Barris, the A-list writer and producer behind the comedy “black-ish,” will part ways with ABC Studios in August — three years before his contract was set to expire — following creative differences.

Mr. Barris, who also has a hot movie career as the co-writer of the script for “Girls Trip,” is widely expected to move to Netflix.

He thanked ABC Studios, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company, and said the production company “supported me every step of the way.”

“It’s been an incredible ride, including a Peabody and Golden Globe win, Emmy nominations and many other accolades,” Mr. Barris said in a statement. “They’ve allowed me to realize my dream of creating my own shows, and I’m so proud of the work we’ve done together.”
