Kevin Hart is set to host the upcoming competition series “TKO: Total Knock Out” on CBS, the network announced Thursday.
Producer Mark Burnett highlights that the show features people from all walks of life where one player races through obstacles while four other contestants are manning battle stations along the course, firing projectiles in an attempt to knock them off and slow them down. The top two players advance to the final showdown to face off for a cash prize.
According to Hart;
This show is perfectly aligned with my global brand, 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 10-episode series will premiere in summer 2018. Hart will also serve as an executive producer. Hart joining the series comes just two months after it was announced his frequent collaborator Dwayne Johnson is set to host and executive produce “The Titan Games” for NBC.
