ABC has cast Romany Malco in Kevin Hart’s sitcom pilot based on his life.

The semi-autobiographical project loosely based on Hart’s stand-up act and takes a “candid look at the post-divorce life of a couple trying to forge a friendship for the sake of their kids, despite differences.”

The project is from former Community executive producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan. Hart is also expected to make occasional on-screen appearances in the show. Malco appeared in the films 40 Year Old Virgin and Blades of Glory, along with shows such as Weeds and No Ordinary Family.
