True Story is written by Eric Newman under his overall deal with Netflix. In addition to Newman, Charles Murray will also executive produce. Stephen Williams will direct and executive produce the first four episodes, and Hanelle Culpepper will direct the final four episodes. We already know that Kevin Hart will be playing a role of a famous stand-up comedian and Wesley Snipes will portray the role of kid’s brother. Tawny Newsome, will play one of Kid’s joke writers in the show. Will Catlett will play as kid’s bodyguard and Lauren London as Kid’s the main character’s ex-wife and mother of his kid. Well, the fans are waiting to see the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes as both are amazing actors.
The plot of the series.
Netflix sets the scene for True Story (stylized on the promotional posters as ‘True Story’) on its website.
It says: “During a tour stop in his hometown of Philadelphia, one of the world’s most famous comedians is forced to answer the question of how far he’ll go to protect what he has.”
Within the trailer, we see that the character Kid seems to have a similar life as the man who plays him, Kevin Hart. He’s grown to be one of the biggest stand-up comedians in the world and he’s from Philadelphia.
Hopefully, that’s where the similarities stop as the trailer suggests the story takes a dark turn. Together with Kid’s older brother Carlton, played by Snipes, they seem to have a wild night out which ends in disaster. The pair attempt to cover up whatever crime they committed. Kid’s life gets more stressful as he attempts to live with a lie and we see multiple occasions of him smashing things out of frustration. The lies seemingly eventually catch up with Kid though, as the final shot of the trailer is of Hart in an orange prison jumpsuit, wearing handcuffs in an interrogation room.
