Wesley Snipes and Kevin Hart are joining forces for a Netflix limited drama series, True Story. The eight-episode event will be executive produced by Hart and Narcos: Mexico executive producer, Eric Newman.

The Philadelphia native will play a version of himself in the fictional series, per Variety. The television drama debut for the 41-year-old follows Kid (Hart), a world-famous comedian on tour who makes a stop in his hometown of Philadelphia. While visiting his older brother Carlton (Snipes), one lost evening turns into a matter of life or death with Kid’s career and everything he built on the line.

Hart expressed his excitement to be on a project opposite the Blade actor in an Instagram post captioned, “I still can’t believe that this is happening….I wanted to do a series that would shock the world.” Also noting that “The legend himself is playing my brother in this project. S–t just got real and I promise you it’s f—–g good.”

“I’ve always been a fan of Wesley Snipes and working with him is mind-blowing,” Hart shared in a statement. “Having HartBeat Productions at the helm and working alongside Eric Newman as a partner and creative arm has been unreal, nobody is ready for what this show is going to be.”
