FOX Picks Up Kevin Hart’s Animated Pilot ‘Lil Kev’
Kevin Hart is on a roll, as the comedian’s animated pilot ‘Lil Kev’ has been picked up by FOX.
Lil Kev will be loosely based on Hart’s life during his younger years. It will follow a 12-year-old boy growing up in a crime-ridden area of North Philadelphia. The animated show will feature characters voiced by Hart, Wanda Sykes, Keith Robertson, Gerald Johnson, and Deon Cole.
“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,” said Michael Thorn, Fox’s entertainment president.
Hart took to Instagram following the release of the news. He wrote: “I refuse to stop people….I have more goals that need to be checked off of my list….a major animation series based off of my life is one of those goals. I have my foot on the gas damn it….I am determined to achieve as much greatness as possible. Major thank you to fox for supporting and believing in my vision.”
