Kevin Hart Has a New Animated Comedy Series Coming to Fox Called LIL KEV
If you're a fan of Kevin Hart and his comedy style, you'll be happy to learn that he's got a new animated series coming to Fox called Lil Kev. The show is based on Hart's comedy and this is the synopsis that was released for the series:
Lil Kev is the story of a 12-year-old, pint-sized, optimistic, highly imaginative kid who navigates growing up in the crime filled inner-city of North Philly with the help and sometimes hindrance of his strong, quick-tempered mother, drug addicted father, pessimistic older brother, ex-con uncle and wise-ass talking dog.
Hart will be providing the voice of the main character and he will be joined by Wanda Sykes, Keith Robertson, Gerald “Slink” Johnson and Deon Cole.
The project is one of many animated projects being developed at Fox. It's being written by Michael Price (The Simpsons) and Matt Claybrooks (Everybody Hates Chris), so we know that the writing will be solid!
When talking about the upcoming series, Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn said:
“I really want a new animated series, that’s a huge priority. It’s a such a strong part of our brand. I think what many people think of Fox is they think of our animated shows, and it would be great to add another original animated series to go with the three series we have on right now, The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers. (Primetime animation) is so specific to Fox, we're the only ones who do it in broadcast, and I think we should continue to own that space.
“It’s About Kevin Hart’s experiences growing up and how his relationship with his mother and his community led to his optimistic, positive outlook despite some of the challenges and circumstances that he grew up with."
I like Kevin Hart's stuff, so the fact that he's got this new animated project rolling forward is pretty cool, and I'm sure his fans will appreciate it.
