Kevin Hart co-wrote and starred in "Night School" alongside Tiffany Haddish back in 2018 and is set to make a return to the movie, but this time as an executive producer.

NBC has given a pilot order to plans to have "Night School" turned into a comedy series. The planned series' storyline will also be based on that of the movie, and will see Hart return, but behind the scenes.

The series, which would be written by Chris Moynihan, will tell the story of a mix of adults, who attend a night school, and over time, bond with one another and later play major roles in each other's lives.

Apart from Kevin Hart, Moynihan, Will Packer, Sheila Ducksworth, and Malcolm D. Lee will also be executive producers of the series. It will be recalled that it was Parker and Lee, who produced and directed the movie, respectively.

Universal TV, from which the new project originated, will also produce it along with Kevin Hart's Hartbeat Productions, Will Packer Media, and Moynihan's Bicycle Path Productions.

The latest project will, once again, see Kevin Hart delve into film production, following his recently produced Netflix Series, "Don't [expletive] This Up."

The Netflix series took a closer look at the comedian's personal life, some experiences he has had over the years, as well as the cheating scandal that rocked his marriage.

In the docuseries, Kevin specially thanked his wife, Eniko, for being strong for him, and was grateful that their marriage stood the test of time. He said:

"I applaud my wife for just displaying a high level of strength that I can't even explain. I applaud her for being my backbone, my support system, and more importantly, taking my life to the next level."

The new "Night School" project will be one of the pioneer broadcast pilots for the 2020 season. It comes following major pilot announcements made by ABC earlier in the week.

ABC had announced a pilot order for the Vampire series, "The Brides," which originated from "Riverdale" creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

They also announced a Pilot Order for a sequel series from "Thirtysomething," which would be called "Thirtysomething."

Fans of "Night School" would be eagerly anticipating the new series, and if the movie is anything to go by, it would be another rib-cracking experience— with Kevin Hart, you can bet on that.
