The series description reads:
A tour stop becomes a matter of life and death for a comedian when the fallout from a night with his brother threatens to destroy everything he’s built.
Kevin spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the series saying:
It’s a thriller; it’s like you’ve never seen me before. It’s a little artistic play. We wanted to raise the level of curiosity, like, “What is Kevin trying to say? Is he playing himself?” We never refer to the character by name, just Kid. And Kid’s life kind of parallels mine to a certain degree, and then it’s exaggerated in some places.
But ultimately it’s a question of, How far would you go to protect the things you’ve worked hardest for? Where would you go to make sure those things remain yours and are never taken from you? I can say just vaguely, because I don’t want to say too much, when life throws certain obstacles and challenges at you, sometimes you don’t even know what you’re capable of.
And that was the biggest thing, we wanted to put our character in a situation where he could ultimately shock himself and truly step outside of his norm to become a person that he never had no idea that he could ever be.
Kevin Hart also gushed about working with Wesley Snipes:
I can’t put words to it. I grew up watching Wesley and emulating Wesley, and the fact that now that’s my guy, my brother, my friend, my costar — it’s everything, plus more.
