It appears Kevin Hart’s 2016 rap collaboration with T.I. has led to a new business venture.

The pair has inked a deal through Lionsgate TV for a forthcoming music comedy series titled “The Studio,” Deadline reported. Executive produced by Hart and T.I., the developing series, which will air on Showtime, will follow “the day-to-day and night-to-night antics” that take place in a recording studio, according to the Hollywood news site.

While a starring cast has yet to be determined, Hart and T.I. are expected to make special guest appearances throughout the series.

With a full slate of upcoming projects, Hart has his eyes set on adding another title to his ever-growing resume, as the comedian’s agent Dave Becky recently told Variety.

“Think comedic Oprah,” Becky said. “He’s going to build companies and invest in companies and do the things that Oprah and LeBron James do, where they don’t just do their craft — they create industries.”

In the meantime, fans can catch Hart alongside his celebrity friends on his upcoming YouTube fitness show, “Kevin Hart: What the Fit?” and in the sequel to the 1995 film “Jumanji” in December.
