Romany Malco to Star in Kevin Hart's ABC Pilot
According to Deadline, Romany Malco (WEEDS) is set to star in Kevin Hart's semi-biographical comedy pilot for ABC. The project, titled KEEPING IT TOGETHER, will follow a couple who attempt to maintain their friendship following a divorce, for the sake of their kids.
Hart will serve as executive-producer of the pilot along with Neil Goldman and Garrett Donavan, who also collaborated on NBC's Community.
Malco and Hart previously worked together on 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN and THINK LIKE A MAN.
Hart launched his career by winning several amateur comedy competitions at clubs throughout New England, culminating in his first real break in 2000 when he was cast by Judd Apatow for a recurring role on the TV series Undeclared. The series lasted only one season, but he soon landed other roles in movies like Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, Think Like a Man, Little Fockers and Soul Plane.
His comedic reputation continued to grow with the release of his first stand-up album I'm a Grown Little Man in 2008. This was followed by Seriously Funny in 2010, and in 2011 Laugh at My Pain. He currently stars as himself in the lead role of Real Husbands of Hollywood.
