A Comedy About Kevin Hart’s Life After Divorce Ordered To Pilot By ABC

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.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

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?

    Yeah, kinda over him. You can only make so many jokes about being a horrible husband and cheater and beg us not to judge you for leaving your wife for the “exotic chick” (his words). He started out funny, but he is losing the spark and is over-exposed. And lets be real, if Kat would have stayed off the pipe, he would still be trying to come up.

  • drebaby

    Talking about over exposure. ..

    I wonder if he’s going to portray her negatively like on “real husbands of Hollywood”. He always says in interviews that he will never talk bad about her. Trashing her in his work is just as bad if not worse. His work is what Heaven and Hendrix are going to see one day.

  • guest

    His ex is going to be on the Hollywood Exes reality show, so they’re both profiting from the divorce. I’m sure he’ll be making a lot more if the show takes off though.

    For someone who is supposedly so happy with his new lady and relationship, he sure loves to capitalize off of Torei and their past relationship. Things that make you go hmmm lol.

    • Moira

      Exactly!! I don’t think he realizes his children will watch this someday and be like “Wait, you think that’s funny what you did to mom?!”

      • J

        Indeed, indeed, indeed! It also makes you wonder if he is truly over her? Ijs.

    Congrats to him, buuuut isn’t that basiclly the same premise as “Real Husbands…” just w/o his children and he has celebrity friends???

    I hope Torei gets a cut of his money everytime he mentions their relationship. I just don’t find him bragging about him being unfaithful, cheating and lying to his wife comedy. I’m sure there are 2 side to the story, but his is always about him cheating and lying.
