Kevin Hart is usually found yukking it up on big screens and small, but for new Netflix series True Story, he’s looking to prove that – following this year’s Fatherhood – he can break out the dramatic acting. The first images of Hart and co-star Wesley Snipes are now online.
With Narcos‘ Eric Newman running the show, the drama finds Hart as Kid, one of the world’s most famous comedians (so, not exactly a huge flex, then). A tour stop in his hometown of Philadelphia becomes a matter of life and death when the consequences of a lost evening with his wayward older brother (Carlton, played by Snipes) threaten to destroy everything he’s built.
Tawny Newsome, Will Catlett, Paul Adelstein, Theo Rossi, Ash Santos, John Ales, Chris Diamantopoulos, Lauren London and former Empire columnist Billy Zane are all in the cast, with Watchmen‘s Stephen Williams directing the first three episodes and Star Trek: Picard‘s Hanelle Culpepper on deck for the other four.
The show will hit the streaming service on 24 November.
