Kevin Hart & 'Black-ish' Producer Join Forces for ABC Comedy 'Don't Call It a Comeback'

Kevin Hart has a new comedy series coming to ABC!

The 39-year-old Night School actor and comedian is executive producing the project, Don’t Call It a Comeback, which is currently in development, Variety reports.

The series hails from writer and executive producer Courtney Lilly, currently an executive producer on ABC’s Black-ish.

The single-camera family comedy is 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,” Kevin said. “I’m so excited to work with him and everybody at ABC.”

“Let’s gooooooooo….Im loving the Hardwork & dedication that I am getting from my team at ‘HartBeat Productions,’” Kevin added on Instagram. “We are so excited to be working with Courtney Lilly. This is a super strong idea with amazing potential. Major thank you to @abcnetwork for giving us a shot!!!!!”
