Kevin Hart to headline Quibi series 'Action Scene'

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Kevin Hart is set to star in an action comedy series for upcoming streaming service Quibi.

Titled "Action Scene", the series is a collaboration between Hart's Laugh Out Loud Network and the streamer, reported Variety.

It follows a fictionalized version of Hart on a quest to land the action movie role of a lifetime.

"After being rejected for the role, Kevin randomly encounters a leading A-List action movie star which inadvertently sets off a chain of events, causing Kevin to fight his way through a series of over-the-top action sequences with the help of some of Hollywood's biggest action movie heroes," the official plotline read.

Hart, who is currently working on "Jumanji: The Next Level", will also executive produce the series alongside Dave Becky.

"I couldn't be more excited to bring big action and even bigger laughs to a new audience through this partnership between Quibi and Laugh Out Loud," he said.

"Our teams are working together to create something truly unique and I can't wait for viewers to see it all unfold," he added.

Jeff Clanagan, the actor's business partner at Laugh Out Loud, will produce the project.

Quibi, co-founded by Hollywood heavyweight Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP CEO Meg Whitman, is set to launch next year.

The streaming service has already lined-up an impressive slate of projects in collaboration with celebs like Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Lopez, Idris Elba, Chrissy Teigen, Lena Waithe, Don Cheadle, Tyra Banks and Lorne Michaels, among others.
