"I refuse to stop people....I have more goals that need to be checked off of my list....a major animation series based off of my life is one of those goals," wrote Hart on Instagram. "I have my foot on the gas damn it....I am determined to achieve as much greatness as possible. Major thank you to fox for supporting and believing in my vision."
Lil Kev will follow a 12-year-old kid growing up in a crime-filled section of North Philadelphia. The animated show will feature voice performances by Hart, Wanda Sykes, Keith Robertson, Gerald “Slink” Johnson, and Deon Cole.
“It’s about Kevin Hart’s experiences growing up and how his relationship with his mother and his community led to his optimistic, positive outlook despite some of the challenges and circumstances that he grew up with,” said Michael Thorn, Fox's entertainment president.
