The contracts keep coming for Datari Turner. After renewing his production deal with Entertainment One last year, the busy writer-actor-producer has paid $1.067 million for a traditional estate in Tarzana, records show.

Set behind gates on half an acre, the home backs up to a fenced and hedged backyard with a patio, a swimming pool pool, a spa and a fire pit.

Inside, the house has hardwood floors and built-ins in a handful of living spaces. French doors and dual-pane windows bring in views of the backyard. An open floor plan connects a living room to a kitchen with cherry cabinetry and a red-and-yellow tiled backsplash.


The master suite expands to an office with picture windows that take in grassy views of the backyard. In all, there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,406 square feet of interior space.

Through his company Datari Turner Productions, Turner created “Growing Up Hip Hop” and its spinoff, “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.” As a producer, his credits include “Kid Cannabis,” “10,000 Saints” and more recently, “Shut Up and Dribble,” alongside co-producer LeBron James.

The property last traded hands in 2005 for $899,000, records show. It first hit the market in June for $1.399 million.

Catherine Scully and Melissa Bladow of Wish Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing, according to the MLS. April L. Cacuyog of PLG Estates represented Turner.
