‘Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City’ Renewed at Comedy Central

Comedy Central has renewed “Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City” for a second season, Variety has learned. The eight-episode second season will premiere in 2017.

“Hart of the City,” currently airing on the network, follows Hart as he journeys across the country searching for fresh comedy talent. Each episode features stand-up sets from local comedians at whichever city Hart is in that week and interstitials where Hart and those comedians discuss the comedy climate in their city. In the first season, Hart visited Atlanta, Houston, Sacramento, Chicago, Birmingham, and other cities less well known for their comedy scenes.  The Season 1 finale airs Sunday, Nov. 20.

“Stand-up comedy doesn’t just belong to New York and L.A. — ‘Hart of the City’ is about shining a light on some of the most talented, hardworking comedians in the game, hailing from cities you don’t normally see on TV,” Hart said. “In Season 2, we’re covering even more ground to give fans a taste of the local flavor in comedy scenes across the country.”

Hart’s a busy man: He is currently shooting “Jumanji,” executive produces and stars in BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood” and has another untitled stand-up series in the works at Comedy Central.

Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City” is executive produced by Hart, Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment, Leland “Pookey” Wigington, and Joey Wells. Harry Ratchford is co-producer, and Jonas Larsen and JoAnn Grigioni are the executives in charge for Comedy Central.
