In a short Instagram video, the comedian took a moment to hug and congratulate Perry as he wrapped up a secret shoot. As the two men embraced, the crowd around them cheered. 

“This brothers studios you have to see UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!,” Harvey wrote in the caption. “Just shot a special project there coming soon...... but y’all gotta go see it.”

In May, NBC canceled Harvey’s talk show “Steve!” and announced Melissa McCarthy would replace him as the host of “Little Big Shots.” 

Despite the job changes, he has still maintained his syndicated radio show and gigs on “Family Feud” and the Miss USA pageant.

While the actor didn’t reveal any details about his latest project with Perry, he suggested he’d share details later. 

Earlier this month, the filmmaker held the opening gala for the 330-acre Tyler Perry Studios. It is the first ever black-owned studio lot and is one of the largest in the country. It features 12 sound stages, which are each named after an iconic black actor.
