Comedy Central greenlights two shows from Kevin Hart, comedy documentary series

Comedy Central has ordered two series from comedy superstar Kevin Hart, the network announced Thursday. 

“Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City” is a travelogue that will follow Hart for eight episodes as he explores the comedy scenes in cities including Philadelphia; Atlanta; Chicago; Birmingham, Ala.; Washington; and Sacramento. (Yes, Sacramento.)  

The Viacom-owned network has also ordered an untitled series of stand-up specials from Hart. Each of the six half-hour specials will spotlight an up-and-coming comedian. 

The shows from Hart were part of an ambitious development slate revealed Thursday, in advance of Comedy Central's upfront presentation in New York. 

Also on the horizon is an as-yet untitled series of documentaries "that will offer a specific and unique take on compelling stories from the world of comedy," according to Comedy Central. The team behind the series includes Jeremy Konner, executive producer of "Drunk History" and "Another Period," and Susan Lacy, creator of PBS' "American Masters" series.

The network also ordered two specials with roastmaster Jeff Ross. "Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle" will feature comedians competing to lob the best insults, while "Jeff Ross Roasts the Police" will follow Ross as he rides along with police and tackles sensitive issues like racial profiling and the use of excessive force.

Last but not least, the network has ordered a slew of stand-up specials featuring the likes of "Daily Show" correspondent Jordan Klepper, "SNL" star Pete Davidson and "Conan" writer Deon Cole.
