Netflix has dropped the first trailer for limited series True Story starring Kevin Hart and Wesley Snipes.

Hart stars as a famous comedian from Philadelphia known as “The Kid” while Snipes plays his older brother. The siblings are reunited when The Kid has a tour stop in his hometown of Philadelphia.

“This is a toast to my little brother. Always got my back,” Snipes says in the trailer, released Wednesday.

The Kid is then shown taking several shots at a bar and seems to black out. Snipes’ character wakes him up to warn, “We got a situation.”

The Kid asks, “What situation?” as detectives knock on the door. Having his older brother come back into his life seems to wreak havoc on The Kid’s career.

“Seven hours ago you were the biggest motherf–ker since Eddie,” The Kid’s older brother says. “Now you’re about to be the most scandalous.”

“Why is it that every time you tell me you got it, I feel like I get in more trouble?”, The Kid asks. The trailer ends with a shot of Hart in an orange prison jumpsuit.
