After topping the box office last week with his new film, “Ride Along,” Kevin Hart is setting up shop at ABC.
The comedian’s semiautobiographical comedy has been given a pilot order at the Alphabet Network, Deadline reports.
The multi-camera comedy will be based on Hart’s standup and drawn from his life, taking “a candid look at the post-divorce life of a couple trying to forge a friendship for the sake of their kids.”
Hart will not star in the series, but he would most likely recur on the show in some form if it is picked up for next fall.
Per Deadline, “Ride Along,” in which he stars opposite Ice Cube, grossed nearly $50 million in its first week at the box office.
The funnyman will next hit the big screen on Valentine’s Day in a remake of “About Last Night,” and he will return in the sequel for “Think Like a Man” later this year.
