Kevin Hart is about to have another amazing year.
Just last week his film Ride Along with Ice Cube topped the box office and set a record for the highest opening of a film in January, and now, after the success of Real Husbands of Hollywood, Hart could possibly be getting another TV show to put his name on, but this time on ABC.
ABC is adding to its comedy pilot pickups, handing out a cast-contingent order to a semi-autobiographical comedy based on the life of Kevin Hart.
The show will be a half hour semi-autobiographical comedy based around Hart’s life post-divorce, something that he talks about a lot in his stand-up specials. In the show, it will follow a couple who is trying to get along after their breakup for the sake of their kids, but as Debbie Downer as that sounds, as with anything Hart is behind, it will be hilarious. The project is being spearheaded by Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, formerly the executive producers of NBC’s Community, and they will write the script for the pilot. And while the show takes a page out of Hart’s book of life, he won’t star in it, he’s just a producer. That, however, doesn’t mean he won’t show up in episodes if the show as a whole is picked up by the network.
Hart celebrated the news on his Instagram last night, saying the following:
Major thank you to ABC for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime as a producer. I’m beyond excited about this…we still got a lot of hard work to do but this puts us one step closer to my goal!!!! #Motivation#HardWorkDedication #ComedicRockstar
Congratulations to Kevin! Would you tune in if the show gets picked up for good on ABC?
