Black solid that auto resizes to text layer?!?

Hi and thanks for looking!

I have a client that requires all their social media videos to be captioned with a low opacity black background solid for legibility.

They have been doing this via premiere and manually cropping every-single-solid to the specific size of each text layer. It is a real bottleneck.

I'm not a master but it seems that I should be able to have AE create a GFX template that can be exported to premiere where a black solid is parented to a text layer. If there is a way for that solid to grow and shrink in lockstep with additions to the text layer while maintaining, lets say, a 60pxl distance from that text box I would love to hear about it!

Please let me know if I need to be more clear!
