Comedian/actor Kevin Hart is gearing towards another role, this time, as the star in the BET pilot titled House Husbands, as part of the network's few new original series line-up.

The series, based on the Hollywood Husbands sketch aired during the 2011 BET awards, is described by BET as "The pressures of spousal stardom are almost too much to bear. Watch the House Husbands air it all out in this semi-scripted reality TV spoof of every fill-in-the-blank Wives franchise."

So, it's the fellas turn to have their own version of the zillion popular Housewives' reality shows. I'm glad it's a spoof of it, which might turn out to be quite funny. We should hear a date annoucement soon from BET.

We last announced Hart is in talks to star in the Will Packer-produced, Screen Gems' comedy Con-Ed, directed by Drumline helmer Charles Stone III, who last directed 2004's baseball comedy Mr. 3000, which starred the late Bernie Mac. He can be seen next in Think Like A Man, opening next weekend, and in Universal's upcoming comedy The Five-Year Engagement.

 Check out the sketch of the 2011 BET awards spoof Hollywood Husbands below, which featured Nelly, Bobby Brown, Anthony Anderson and Jermaine Dupri.
