Everyone wants to be in the Kevin Hart business these days! The man is on fire!

The actor/comedian has set up an untitled divorced-couple comedy at the house where Shonda Rhimes calls home - ABC

The comedy will give audiences a candid look at the like of a couple after their divorce, as they try to rebuild their relationship as friends, for the sake of their children.

The project hails from the writers and producers of Community and Scrubs, Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, and will be based on Kevin Hart’s own stand-up material. 

However, Hart isn't expected to star in the series. Instead, he'll likely take a recurring role (assuming the series is picked up). 

Hart will exec produce along with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky, Goldman, and Donovan.

It's been an incredibly busy year for Hart. Strike while the iron is hot as the saying goes...

He'll be co-starring with Will Ferrell in a comedy titled Get Hard; he's starring alongside veterans Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in a film called Grudge Match, in which he plays a fight promoter who gets both old men to return to the ring; there's the remake of the 1986 rom-com, About Last Night, starring Hart, Michael EalyJoy Bryant and Regina Hall; Also Ride Along, starring Hart and Ice Cube in the action comedy; there's also The Wedding Ringer, which stars Hart and Josh Gad, in which Hart plays a charismatic guy who provides best man services for socially-challenged guys, who can’t get anyone to stand by them on their wedding days; and there's the sequel to Think Like A Man.

On the small screen, you'll see him in BET's Real Husbands Of Hollywood, when it returns for another season.

But there's still more...

It's race between Hart, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson for the hardest working man in showbiz today award!
