Kevin Hart's 6-Part Netflix Docuseries Gives Candid Look into His Life over the past Year and a Half
On December 27, 2019, Kevin Hart is set to release his new documentary series called “Don’t [expletive] This Up.” A preview was recently released that showed his wife crying while addressing his cheating scandal.
Hart’s docuseries will focus on his life and the challenges that he’s faced. A sneak peek of the new series showed a short clip where his then-pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish addressed the actor’s cheating scandal.
HART’S OSCAR HOSTING SCANDAL
Unfortunately, fans won’t get to see the behind-the-scenes of Hart's life during the cheating scandal. The six-part series will also tackle the actor’s many career controversies over the last few years.
Fans will see how Hart's life was during the time he was surrounded by the Oscar hosting controversy last December. The comedian endured some backlash after he was chosen to host the Academy Awards.
ACTOR’S MAJOR CAR INJURY
At the time, some homophobic comments the star had previously made resurfaced. The actor eventually stepped down from the hosting gig to avoid further scrutiny and to save his career.
Hart's career also nearly came to an end earlier this year when he was involved in a terrible car accident. The incident was so bad that it landed him in the hospital where he needed back surgery and multiple months of rehabilitation.

HART STEPPED DOWN FROM HOSTING OSCARS
His road to recovery and the accident are rumored to be covered on the special. The comedian revealed last month that he was working on his docuseries which will also feature interviews with Hart’s friends and family, archival footage from his childhood days and early years performing stand-up, and “personal anecdotes from the comic himself.”
Hart’s Hartbeat Productions will produce alongside Lionsgate, Makemake, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Magical Elves. In an Instagram video, the star noted about the series: “It’s as real, as raw, as transparent as you can be. It’s something that I think people need to see."
When Hart stepped down as the host for the Oscars, he also gave a written apology when he saw the immense backlash he was receiving. Despite the scandal, it was revealed that the leadership at the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences and ABC were reportedly open to Hart resuming his role as the event’s emcee if he expressed interest.
HIS REFUSAL TO HOST THE GIG
However, the actor shared that he was not willing to host the show and the only time he’d get on the stage was if he got announced as a winner in a category.
