Kevin Hart Heading to CBS to Host Competition Game Show

Kevin Hart- record setting stand up comedian, movie star, and…game show host?

CBS announced on Thursday that Kevin Hart will host an obstacle course competition series. Titled “TKO: Total Knock Out” the series will pit four contestants against one, as the one attempts to race through obstacles, while four others try to prevent that player from completing the course by firing projectiles along the way. A cash prize, of course lies at the end of the competition. Mark Burnett will executive produce.

“This show is perfectly aligned with my global brand,” Hart said. “The minute Mark Burnett pitched me, I got it and we decided to work together. This show has the potential to make me look tall.”

The series will air this summer, and a ten episode initial run is planned.
