It’s been a cruel spring for sports fans as the coronavirus pandemic sidelined teams, players and leagues around the world. Kevin Hart feels that pain too, and today he premieres a new five-episode homebound season of his iced-down web series Cold as Balls.
Hart usually interviews his Cold as Balls guests from the icy realm of the cold tub. Cold Calls takes the talk to the couch via video call — with each guest calling into the show without the host knowing who’s on the other line.
The new season of the sports talk series, which won the 2018 Streamy Award for Sports, also will feature NFL stars Russell Wilson and Derrick Henry, retired NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb and NBA All-Star Paul George. Cold as Balls boasts 1.1 billion YouTube views since its 2018 launch.
OBB’s Michael D. Ratner and Sean Thomas Spencer created the series with Ratner serving as executive producer alongside Hart, Laugh Out Loud President Jeff Clanagan, Dave Becky and OBB’s Scott Ratner and Kfir Goldberg.
