John Travolta to star in 'Die Hart'

Los Angeles, Feb 5 (PTI) Hollywood veteran John Travolta is joining Kevin Hart in the upcoming comedy action series, 'Kevin Hart'.

Set at the short-form content provider Quibi, the show marks Travolta's return to the small screen since his role as lawyer Robert Shapiro in 'The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story'.

'Die Hart', a clever wordplay on the action blockbuster series 'Die Hard', follows a fictionalised version of Hart on a quest to land the action movie role of a lifetime, reported Variety.

He gets his wish when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star – but there's a catch: Hart must first train at the world's greatest action star school, run by a lunatic (Travolta).

The series is a collaboration between Hart's production banner Laugh Out Loud Network and Quibi.

The show is directed by Eric Appel and written by Tripper Clancy and Derek Kolstad. PTI RDS RDS
