MotorTrend Group has greenlit Kevin Hart’s Muscle Car Crew, an automotive series from actor, comedian, producer and avid car collector Kevin Hart and his comedy crew The Plastic Cup Boyz (pictured above, with Hart second from left). The series takes a lighthearted look at the world of car collecting and what it means to be a muscle car devotee as the team attempts to successfully launch its own automotive club.
The Plastic Cup Boyz include John Clausell, Ron Everline, Spank Horton, Harry Ratchford and Joey Wells. Lucky Costa from MotorTrend’s Hot Rod Garage acts as house mechanic for Hart and his crew, advising them on their muscle car builds and helping them through a crash course on car culture.
“Fans will have a ball experiencing this classic car journey through the eyes of Kevin Hart and The Plastic Cup Boyz,” Alex Wellen, president and general manager, MotorTrend Group said in a statement. “It’s a 101 course on everything we love about car culture with the hilarity and humility that only Kevin and his crew can bring to storytelling.”
“We’re excited to partner with MotorTrend and Propagate to explore car culture through this unique lens of friendship and comedy,” said Mike Stein, head of TV, HartBeat Productions. “It’s a new content genre for HartBeat Productions, and we can’t wait to share it with audiences.”
The series is produced for the MotorTrend App by HartBeat Productions and Propagate Content’s Big Breakfast. Luke Kelly-Clyne, Kevin Healey, and Rebecca Graham Forde are executive producers for Big Breakfast with Propagate’s Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens and Drew Buckley. For HartBeat Productions, Kevin Hart, Bryan Smiley, Mike Stein, Harry Ratchford, Joey Wells and Brenden Carter are executive producers and Tiffany Brown is co-producer.
