According to Variety, Kevin Hart will be executive producing a new comedy titled “Don’t Call It A Comeback,” over at ABC, which comes from writer and executive producer Courtney Lilly.
Based on the synopsis, the comedy is “a single-camera family comedy 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.”
Hart will be producing through his HartBeat Productions alongside HartBeat’s John Cheng. He talked about his excitement for working with Lilly on the project and said,“Courtney’s idea is funny, relatable and most importantly has so much heart—all the elements that belong in a HartBeat production. I’m so excited to work with him and everybody at ABC.”
Aside from producing on the current hit show “Black-ish,” Lilly’s previous projects include “Undateable” at NBC, “The Cleveland Show” at Fox. He also served as a writer on “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Arrested Development.”
