Nickelodeon has entered into an exclusive first-look deal with comedian, actor and television personality Kevin Hart (Night SchoolJumanji, The Secret Life of Pets) and his production entity, HartBeat Productions.  Hugely popular among Nickelodeon’s audience, Hart will develop and produce live-action, scripted kids’ content for the network through HartBeat.

Kevin Hart noted, “For me, Nick has always represented everything fun about being a kid, and it’s still at the forefront today of kids’ and family entertainment.  I’ve been slimed at Kids’ Choice, won a lot of Orange Blimps and my kids are my very own built-in focus group, so I’m ready to dive in and make some next-level shows with Brian and everyone at Nickelodeon.”

Added Brian Robbins, Nickelodeon’s newly named president: “I’m excited to inherit this terrific content deal with Kevin Hart just as I step into my new role at Nickelodeon. Kevin is an incredible talent whose appeal cuts across practically every age group and every member of the family.  He knows how to create unforgettable characters, and I can’t wait for him and HartBeat Productions to focus their creativity on making great new content with us.”

Hart is no stranger to Nickelodeon and its audience, having garnered numerous Kids’ Choice Awards nominations and Orange Blimp wins. In 2014, Hart won for “Favorite Funny Star.” In 2017, he took home two awards in the categories of “Favorite Villain” and “Most Wanted Pet” (Snowball, The Secret Life of Pets), and one for “BFFs” (Central Intelligence).
