Kevin Hart has finalized a first-look deal with Netflix. Through this new agreement, Hart will work on multiple films and align his production imprint with the streaming giant.
“Partnering with Netflix is an amazing opportunity for HartBeat and myself,” Hart said.
“I am excited to act in and produce cutting edge films with Netflix. I am extremely grateful to Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber, we share the same creative vision and always put the audience first. This business is about growth and my HartBeat team continues to exceed my expectations with their ability to develop stories and relationships. Our goal is to make the HartBeat name synonymous with first-class entertainment and narratives.”
Hart is currently working on a Netflix comedy called Man From Toronto. He is also set to star alongside Wesley Snipes in the drama, True Story.
“Netflix has enjoyed a long relationship with Kevin and we’ve been lucky enough to partner with him many times,” Netflix executive Scott Stuber said.
He’s a hands-on producer and it’s been great to watch him build an incredible company with HartBeat. There are very few artists who can attract audiences of all ages and succeed in making comedies, dramas and family films. We’re excited to partner with Kevin, and his great team at Hartbeat, to entertain our audience for years to come.”
