Under the deal, Hart will produce and develop live-action scripted kids content for the network via his HartBeat Productions banner.
“For me, Nick has always represented everything fun about being a kid, and it’s still at the forefront today of kids’ and family entertainment,” Hart said in a statement. “I’ve been slimed at ‘Kids’ Choice,’ won a lot of Orange Blimps and my kids are my very own built-in focus group, so I’m ready to dive in and make some next-level shows with Brian and everyone at Nickelodeon.”
