Via Variety, “Under the deal, Hart and his HartBeat Productions banner will develop and produce live-action, scripted kids content for the network. News of the deal comes less than two weeks after Awesomeness TV co-founder Brian Robbins was taped to lead Nickelodeon after most recently serving as head of Paramount Pictures’ genre division, Paramount Players.”
Kevin should be familiar with Nickelodeon because back in 2014 he won the Kid’s Choice Award for Favorite Funny Star. In 2017 he also took some awards home the awards in the categories of Favorite Villian and Most Wanted Pet for his role in the animation “The Secret Life Pets.”
Kevin shared some thoughts about the network, he says, “for me, Nick as always represented everything fun about being a kid, and it’s still at the forefront today of kids’ and family entertainment. I’ve been slimed at Kids’ Choice, won a lot of Orange Blimps and my kids are my very own built-in focus group, so I’m ready to dive in and make some next-level shows with Brian and everyone at Nickelodeon.”
Kevin has numerous project in the development stages and he also has a first-look film deal with Universal Studios.
