Kevin Hart's already off to an incredible start in 2021, as he just signed an exclusive deal with Netflix, that's essentially taking his production company, HartBeat Productions, to the next level. Within this multi-year deal, Hart will star in at least four of the films he produces that will be available on our favorite streaming site.
"Partnering with Netflix is an amazing opportunity for HartBeat and myself," Kevin shared. "I am excited to act in and produce cutting-edge films with Netflix. I am extremely grateful to Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber; We share the same creative vision and always put the audience first." Hart also explained his focus on growth, as this has always been a priority for HartBeat Productions.
"This business is about growth, and my HartBeat team continued to exceed my expectations with their ability to develop stories and relationships," Hart continued. Kevin's deal with Netflix is incredibly monumental, as they don't make these sort of arrangements very often. The last actor to sign an exclusive agreement with them was Adam Sandler, who, like Hart, is a comedian, actor, and filmmaker.
Not only is this an incredible opportunity for Hart himself, but also for Netflix. "Netflix has enjoyed a long relationship with Kevin, and we've been lucky enough to partner with him many times," said Scott Stuber, Netflix film head. "There are very few artists who can attract audiences of all ages and succeed in making comedies, dramas, and family films. We're excited to partner with Kevin and his great team at HartBeat, to entertain our audience for years to come."
Hart and his entire team at HartBeat Productions have incredibly high hopes for the future and have made providing quality entertainment for the audience their main priority. "Our goal is to make the HartBeat name synonymous with first-class entertainment and narratives," Hart shared. So, it seems like there's a lot to look forward to in 2021 and a ton of great Kevin Hart entertainment coming our way!
