Hardison is known for his work on “A Different World” as well as his roles in several other television shows including “Love Is__,” “K.C. Undercover,” “Everybody Hates Chris,” “Girlfriends,” “House,” “Abby” and “Between Brothers.” His film credits include “The Sixth Man,” “White Men Can’t Jump,” “School Daze” and “Drive.” He is represented by Global Artists Agency and Untitled Entertainment.

The series will also star Paul Scheer, Yassir Lester, Michael James Scott and Eugene Cordero. Guest stars include Ken Marino, Kurt Braunohler and Casey Wilson, who will take on a recurring role.

“Black Monday” is set to premiere in January with 10 episodes.
