After the viral YouTube trailer Bel-Air released in 2019, it will now become a TV series as streaming platforms including HBO Max, Peacock and Netflix review the project.
Will Smith has teamed up with the writer and director of the trailer Morgan Cooper to reimagine the NBC Comedy The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Described as a dramatic take on the original series, Bel-Air (starring Jerry Madison Jr.) will focus deeper into “inherent conflicts, emotions and biases of what it means to be a Black man in America today,” The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Original series producers Smith, Quincy Jones and Benny Medina, as well as creators Andy and Susan Borowitz, are set to return as executive producers.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ran from 1990-1996 starring Will Smith alongside James Avery, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons, Tatyana M. Ali, Joseph Marcell and Janet Hubert-Whitten and Daphne Maxwell Reid.
