Kevin Hart and Nickelodeon together is great news! Based on some recent news we find that Kevin Hart and his production company HartBeat Productions have entered into a first-look deal with Nickelodeon. It is the understanding that Hart will develop and produce live-action, scripted kids’ content and this is great news indeed. Based on the type of comedy that Hart does, this seems like great marriage and should help keep Nickelodeon at the same level or beyond Disney for this type of programming.
Based on this news we are hoping for a few things. The first is we hope that this means we will get to see Kevin himself guest star in some new shows, heck we would be excited to see a show based on his life as a child. We also hope that even if he does not directly appear in shows that he helps the cast of the shows that are created in terms of teaching them. We really enjoy his brand of comedy and look forward to seeing it on a level that will appeal to kids.
Nickelodeon has entered into an exclusive first-look deal with comedian, actor and television personality Kevin Hart (Night School, Jumanji, The Secret Life of Pets) and his production entity, HartBeat Productions. Hugely popular among Nickelodeon’s audience, Hart will develop and produce live-action, scripted kids’ content for the network through HartBeat.
Kevin Hart noted, “For me, Nick has always represented everything fun about being a kid, and it’s still at the forefront today of kids’ and family entertainment. I’ve been slimed at Kids’ Choice, won a lot of Orange Blimps and my kids are my very own built-in focus group, so I’m ready to dive in and make some next-level shows with Brian and everyone at Nickelodeon.”
Added Brian Robbins, Nickelodeon’s newly named President: “I’m excited to inherit this terrific content deal with Kevin Hart just as I step into my new role at Nickelodeon. Kevin is an incredible talent whose appeal cuts across practically every age group and every member of the family. He knows how to create unforgettable characters, and I can’t wait for him and HartBeat Productions to focus their creativity on making great new content with us.”
Hart is no stranger to Nickelodeon and its audience, having garnered numerous Kids’ Choice Awards nominations and Orange Blimp wins. In 2014, Hart won for “Favorite Funny Star.” In 2017, he took home two awards in the categories of “Favorite Villain” and “Most Wanted Pet” (Snowball, The Secret Life of Pets), and one for “BFFs” (Central Intelligence).
