Die Hart: Kevin Hart and John Travolta to star in new Quibi series

According to Variety, Quibi is in the process of developing a new comedy-action series titled Die Hart, with Jumanji star Kevin Hart attached to lead the series as a fictionalized version of himself. Joining Hart is Golden Globe winner John Travolta, who is returning to the small screen after 4 years since starring and producing FX’s award-winning miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story in 2016.

Inspired by the opening sequence from Hart’s 2016 concert film, Die Hart will follow Kevin Hart as meta version of himself who’s tired of always getting cast as a comedic sidekick. He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic (John Travolta). Pushed to his limits by this action school coach and a tough-minded rival student, Kevin must survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime.

The series will be directed by Eric Appel from a script written by Tripper Clancy and Derek Kolstad. It will be executive produced by Hart through his Laugh Out Loud Network banner with Candice Wilson, Bryan Smiley and Jeff Clanagan serving as producers.

Production for Die Hart is scheduled to begin next week on Monday.
