First Look At Kevin Hart And Wesley Snipes In Netflix Drama Series ‘True Story’

The unlikely pairing of Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes are teaming up in an unlikely drama. True Story is a Netflix limited series starring Hart and Snipes in a fictionalized story based on the comedian’s life. Not exactly the genre we’d expect to see from these two, but it could lead to some of the most powerful work of their careers.

True Story stars Hart as Kid, a popular comedian who returns home to the city of Philadelphia to reconnect with his wayward brother, Carlton, played by Snipes. Here’s the full synopsis:

A tour stop in Kid’s (Hart) hometown of Philadelphia becomes a matter of life and death for one of the world’s most famous comedians when the consequences of a lost evening with his wayward older brother (Snipes) threaten to destroy everything he’s built.

The series also stars Tawny Newsome, Will Catlett, Paul Adelstein, Ash Santos, Lauren London, John Ales, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Billy Zane. Charles Murray (Sons of Anarchy) will act as showrunner, with Stephen Williams (Watchmen) and Hanelle Culpepper (Star Trek: Picard) directing episodes.

True Story hits Netflix on November 24th.
