Comedian Kevin Hart has announced that he will be producing a new family-friendly show for ABC.
The 'Get Hard' actor will be co-producing a new family-friendly comedy, Don’t Call It a Comeback, for ABC alongside producer and creator Courtney Lilly. Lilly's most notable works include 'black-ish' and 'Everybody Hates Chris.'
According to Variety, "The series is a single-camera family comedy about a 40-year old divorced dad who had one hit with a PM Dawn-type hip-hop group back in the ’90s and how he uses his attempt at a comeback to get his swagger back in parenting, relationships and life and prove that no matter where you are, your best days are ahead of you."
“Courtney’s idea is funny, relatable and most importantly has so much heart—all the elements that belong in a HartBeat production,” Hart told Variety. “I’m so excited to work with him and everybody at ABC.”
Hart will be busy next year. He's already announced that he will be working on several kid-friendly shows for Nickelodeon, producing live-action scripted kids content for the network.
