Over the years Kevin Hart has been upfront about his fascination with cars, and now the beloved comedian has a new automobile series in the works. Hart and his comedy crew, The Plastic Cup Boyz, will lead the soon-to-be-released series “Kevin Hart’s Muscle Car Crew.”
The eight-episode series is a partnership with the MotorTrend Group and the Jumanji star’s HartBeat Productions. The automotive series is scheduled to launch this fall exclusively on the MotorTrend App, the leading subscription service dedicated specifically to the world of motoring.
“Fans will have a ball experiencing this classic car journey through the eyes of Kevin Hart and The Plastic Cup Boyz,” said Alex Wellen, president and general manager of MotorTrend Group in a statement to “Deadline.” “It’s a 101 course on everything we love about car culture with the hilarity and humility that only Kevin and his crew can bring to storytelling.”
The show offers a lighthearted look into the world of car collecting, as Hart and his crew aim to establish their own automotive club. The Plastic Cup Boyz members joining Hart in the series include John Clausell, Ron Everline, Spank Horton, Harry Ratchford and Joey Wells.
Lucky Costa, from MotorTrend’s “Hot Rod Garage,” will serve as the crew’s house mechanic on the show. She’ll be guiding them through muscle car builds, while contributing to a crash course on car culture as well.
“We’re excited to partner with MotorTrend and Propagate to explore car culture through this unique lens of friendship and comedy,” said Mike Stein, head of TV at HartBeat Productions. “It’s a new content genre for HartBeat Productions, and we can’t wait to share it with audiences.”
In 2018, Hart celebrated the end of his highly successful “Irresponsible” tour by buying classic cars for The Plastic Cup Boyz crew. He posted a video at the time, stating, “So the tour’s over and … I just surprised my whole team with old schools.”
Hart reportedly paid over $500 thousand for the car classics.
