Kevin Hart teases his forthcoming Quibi action series Die Hart… as fledgling streaming service continues to flounder

The launch of new streaming service Quibi was recently described as ‘disastrous’.

But despite low subscriber numbers and heavy criticism of the platform, Kevin Hart is still very excited about his forthcoming action series for the service, titled Die Hart.

‘Brace yourselves people…..Major heat will be coming your way soon….’ gushed the 40-year-old of the project, in a Thursday Instagram post.

His caption, accompanying a poster for the short-form series, continued, ‘I’m so proud of my teams right now. I have been trying to create a genre of movie for myself for a while now….’

‘I wanted to create something along the lines of Austin Powers but with real action and more of a grounded reality.’

‘I am proud to say that we f***ing did it…..’ the Central Intelligence actor continued.

Hart joked, ‘I think I’m a ACTION STAR now….stop judging me….Just roll with it!!!!!’

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star then promised fans they’d see a teaser for the show ‘in a couple of days’.

The Face Off star will play a filmmaker who teaches Hart (playing himself) the craft of acting in action films after he tires of the sidekick roles he’s rose to fame in.

‘He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic (Travolta),’ the studio said in a synopsis of the forthcoming series.

Meanwhile, short-form content provider Quibi has had a less-than-auspicious start, according to the Financial Times on Monday. 

The publication called Quibi’s rollout ‘one of the most disastrous US start-up launches of the era’.

Even co-creator Jeffrey Katzenberg told the New York Times that viewership of the service he started with veteran tech executive Meg Whitman was ‘not close to what we wanted’ and blamed coronavirus for their woes.

The service is currently on track to miss its subscriber goal for year one by more than 5 million according to the Wall Street Journal.
