As shared, ABC recently announced its plans to push forward with a comedy series loosely based around Kevin Hart’s life, and now the series gets one step closer by adding actor Romany Malco as it’s star.
Romany Malco is set as the lead of ABC‘s multi-camera comedy pilot Keep It Together, lifting the cast-contingency off the project from hot actor-comedian Kevin Hart and former Community executive producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan. Written by Goldman and Donovan based on Hart’s life and stand-up and, Keep It Together takes a candid look at the post-divorce life of a couple, Derek (Malco) and Lorraine, trying to forge a friendship for the sake of their kids, despite differences. Derek is a fit and energetic exercise equipment salesman. 20th Century Fox TV is producing, with Hart, his manager Dave Becky, Goldman and Donovan executive producing. Hart would play a recurring role subject to availability. Malco and Hart have a long standing relationship dating way back to working together on 40 Year Old Virgin. Most recently they appeared together in the hit Sony Screen Gem Think Like A Man films. Malco is with Principato-Young, Paul Kohner, and Ziffren.
