For the past few years, Kevin Hart has been one of the most popular comedians in the game. He has been touring for years and he has risen in popularity each year. Hart has been compared by some as the second coming of Martin Lawrence. While he likes the comparisons, Hart wants to create his own lane.

After a slip-up, Lawrence has successfully put his career back together. Martin Lawrence landed a sitcom with FOX that was a success from 1992 to 1997. But, his increasinly erratic behavior led to the network cancelling the show. Lawrence now has a successful sitcom airing on TV One.

Kevin Hart has been on top of his game for years and FOX has noticed him. The network has been attempting to diversify its schedule for a long time. In 2009, they brought on the Michael Strahan sitcom, called "Brothers." The sitcom did not catch on with fans and was cancelled within months.

However, FOX is willing to try again. Kevin Hart has landed the starring role in the new sitcom, "Little in Common." Hart will play the role of Ty Burelson, a former athlete and sports writer who is now a house-husband. Burelson coaches little league baseball. The show is original, in concept, as it includes three familes, of three different races, interacting through the baseball team. Rob Corddry also stars in the upcoming sitcom.
