ABC gives green light to Kevin Hart comedy

Kevin Hart keeps representing North Philly.

ABC has committed to a half-hour comedy pilot based on the comedian's stand-up.

The premise of the series is a "candid look" at the life of a conflicted couple with kids, post-divorce.

Although Hart won't star in the series, THR reports he will play a recurring role if the show is given the go-ahead after the pilot.

The script will be penned by dynamic Community duo Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan.

Goldman, Donovan, Hart, and Hart's manager will executive produce the pilot.

The untitled show is described as a "multicamera comedy" from 20th Century Fox.
