Olympic Highlights is described as a "hilariously funny commentary series." Hart and Snoop Dogg "will recap the Olympics' most impressive displays of athleticism, as well as the moments that don't go as planned."

"Kevin and Snoop will be your comedy guides through the Tokyo Olympics," Peacock said.

Olympic Highlights is produced by Hart's LOL Studios. Paul Pawlowski will serve as showrunner and executive produce with Hart, Jeff Clanagan and Candice Wilson Cherry.

Hart first hinted at the series during the NBCUniversal upfront in May. The actor signed a multi-year deal with Peacock in 2020.

The Tokyo Olympics will take place July 23-Aug. 8. Organizers in Tokyo and the International Olympic Committee said Monday that the limit for local fans attending the Olympics this year will be 50% capacity per venue up to 10,000 people.
