ABC has placed a cast-contingent pilot order for a semi-autobiographical multicamera comedy from stand-up comedian Kevin Hart, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The project comes from former “Community” executive producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, and is about a couple who try to create a friendship after they get divorced, in order to help their kids. Hart isn’t slated to star, but may appear in a recurring role if the project goes to series.
Goldman and Donovan are writing the script and executive producing for 20th Century Fox, where they are under an overall deal, the story says.
Hart broke out in Judd Apatow’s Fox show “Undeclared,” which premiered in 2001, and he now sells out large arenas on his comedy tours, performing in venues such as the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York.
