Kevin Hart to Develop Sneaker Salesman Comedy Starring Dan Levy


Kevin Hart is once again drawing inspiration from his own life for his latest series, “True to Size.”

The comedian is developing the half-hour comedy for Peacock with Dan Levy, who will write and present. Here is the principle of the series:

Before Kevin Hart was the world’s greatest comedian, before his movies made over a billion dollars, and before he was a mogul, he was a lost 20-year-old in Philadelphia working in a sneaker store in a 90s mall – a job he didn’t really want and only took to make his mom happy and get her out of trouble. However, this job will end up changing his life forever when the store manager convinces him to try standing in front of an open mic.

Set in 1998, “True to Size” will follow 20-year-old Kevin after he finds a new job selling sneakers at Sneaker World, and the family he forms from his misfit b-team who are all also lost on the way to “discover” life in their twenties.

Hart will serve as executive producer alongside Levy, along with Doug Robinson, Bryan Smiley and Mike Stein. The project comes from Sony Pictures Television.

This isn’t the first time Hart has drawn inspiration from his life for a TV show. Last year, he starred opposite Wesley Snipes in “True Story,” a limited series based on his Philadelphia debut.
