Kevin Hart Sets Divorce Comedy Project at ABC

Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan to pen multicamera laffer for 20th Century Fox TV

Comedian Kevin Hart is planting his flag at ABC, setting up an untitled divorced-couple comedy from 20th Century Fox TV with “Community” and “Scrubs” alums Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan.

The multicamera laffer is based on Hart’s standup material. He would not topline the show but would likely have a recurring role should the series get picked up.

Project is described as a candid look at the post-divorce life of a couple trying to forge a friendship for the sake of their kids.

Hart (pictured above), Goldman, Donovan will exec produce along with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky. ABC has given the project at put pilot commitment.

Hart’s star has shot up in the past few years with the success of his standup comedy tours and his embrace of social media (he boasts nearly 9 million Twitter followers).

He’s been one of the few comedians to score in recent years with standup performance feature film releases, as his “Let Me Explain” grossed more than $32 million at the B.O. this summer. And he’s also a regular on the BET reality skein “Husbands of Hollywood.”

Hart had a short-lived comedy on ABC in 2004, “The Big House,” also from 20th TV.

Goldman and Donovan are highly sought-after comedy show runners who had a long stint on “Scrubs” and also worked on the first three seasons of “Community.” The pair inked an overall deal with 20th TV last year.

Hart, Goldman and Donovan are repped by UTA.
