Kevin Hart & Wesley Snipes’ Limited Drama ‘True Story’ Gets Release Date On Netflix
Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes’ new drama is on the way.
Netflix announced that ‘True Story,‘ which will star Kevin Hart opposite of Wesley Snipes, will debut on the streaming platform Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021.
The limited drama, which will be Hart’s first dramatic role, will follow his character, Kid, on a visit to his hometown of Philadelphia. Snipes, who plays Hart’s older brother Carlton, will take him out for an eventful night that may become dangerous for them both.
During a recent interview, Kevin Hart said,
“This was an opportunity for me to step outside of my norm and partake in a genre of this craft that I never imagined that I would get to. My road to this type of role has been a long one, and I wanted to make sure that it was something that I could do and have my fan base really believe in, respect, and say, ‘We’ve actually witnessed him work his way to get here.’ Doing The Upside was strategic, doing Fatherhood was strategic, and now doing True Story is strategic. This is about me finding new excitement in my craft, in my talent, and putting it on display.”
Kevin Hart returns to Netflix after starring in ‘Fatherhood,’ in which he played a widower, trying to raise his daughter on his own.
As previously reported, Eric Newman, showrunner of Netflix’s popular series Narcos, will be an executive producer for the series along with Hart.
On the project and the opportunity to work with Wesley Snipes, Hart said,
“I’ve never been more excited about an acting project in my career. I’ve always been a fan of Wesley Snipes and working with him is mind-blowing. Having HartBeat Productions at the helm and working alongside Eric Newman as a partner and creative arm has been unreal, nobody is ready for what this show is going to be.”
