Kevin Hart and Chris Rock Hit the Road Together in Trailer for Netflix Doc Headliners Only

Kevin Hart and Chris Rock are teaming up for a Netflix documentary.

The duo are set to star in the streaming giant’s Kevin Hart & Chris Rock: Headliners Only, which follows “two comedy icons as they tour together” — specifically, during their week-long stint in New York and New Jersey in July 2022, titled Rock Hart: Only Headliners Allowed.

“In a first-of-its-kind documentary, Kevin Hart & Chris Rock: Headliners Only will give audiences a behind the scenes glimpse into the lives of two comedy titans,” reads an official description of the Rashidi Harper-directed film.

The synopsis adds, “This exclusive film follows Hart and Rock as they give first hand accounts of their early lives, struggles, triumphs and their unbreakable brotherhood.”

The 60-second teaser trailer begins with Hart, 44, saying, “This is a story about two separate journeys [that] somehow align and end up at the same intersection at the top.”

Later in the trailer, Hart tells Rock, 58, “I’m excited about this week not just because of the arena factor … ” before Rock cuts in, “I’m just excited to hang out with you! That’s it.”
Hart and Rock announced their joint tour in March 2022, with the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star saying in a statement, “When Chris and I realized we were both going to be on tour this year we immediately knew we needed to do something special. We have been friends and mentors to each other for 20 years, but we have never shared a headlining stage together — until now!”

“I cannot think of a better way to celebrate the return of live comedy than to co-headline a show with my brother Chris Rock. This is a major moment in comedy and one for the history books,” Hart added.

The sold-out tour —which commenced four months after the infamous slap incident between Rock and Will Smith at the 2022 Oscars — was full of surprises, including an appearance from Dave Chappelle at their Madison Square Garden show to bringing a goat out onstage (which Hart joked was named Will Smith.)

Rock continued his stand-up success with the release of his live comedy special Chris Rock: Selective Outrage, which aired on Netflix this past March.

During the special, Rock skewered Smith, 55, and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, claiming that the King Richard actor “practices selective outrage.”

Following the special’s airing, an industry source told PEOPLE that Rock was “riding high from” and added, “He said what he needed to say and doesn’t give a s— about the reaction either way. He isn’t worried.”

In her new memoir Worthy, Pinkett Smith, 52, appears to share her thoughts on Rock’s comedy special, writing in part, “What do you do, say, if someone decides to make a comedy special full of lies and unwarranted insults? You love them as God does, and you say to yourself when people hurt that it could be they believe they will feel better if they lash out.”

Selective Outrage, which was filmed in Pinkett Smith’s hometown of Baltimore, marked the first time Rock publicly addressed the slap incident. Will, who has since apologized, was banned from Academy events for 10 years.

Kevin Hart & Chris Rock: Headliners Only premieres Dec. 12 on Netflix.
