The original creation was uploaded to Netflix just a few days ago and has already reached sixth place in the ranking of the most-watched content in the Us and Europe on the streaming platform.
The original name of the series is “True Story” which translates to “Histoire vraie” in France, so does that mean that the fiction is based on a real story? The creator of La Réalité en Face answered this question in an interview.
Unfortunately, or rather, fortunately, the series is not based on a true story. Kevin Hart has therefore never experienced what is told in True Story, but the American actor has already been at the heart of many scandals since the beginning of his career.
The screenplay was written entirely by Eric Newman, who told the New York Times, “True Story is largely fictional, but Kevin Hart’s real-life has not been short of drama. (…) it has been almost three years since he left his role as host of the Oscars after some of his jokes and comments were criticized as homophobic. ”
True Story, therefore, does not tell us a true story but is nonetheless inspired by the life of Kevin Hart and shows us how scandals can influence private life (family, friends, etc.). Season 2 has yet to be ordered by Netflix but maybe there will be an announcement in a few weeks.
