Titled Bel-Air, it’s described as a dramatic take on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air comedy, which follows a street-smart kid who relocates from Philly to an upper-class neighborhood.
The description for the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter, reads:
“Bel-Air is described as an hourlong dramatic retelling of the beloved ’90s sitcom that leans into the original premise of Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions, and biases of what it means to be a Black man in America today, while still delivering the swagger and fun nods to the original show.”
Producers for the original Fresh Prince will return to back the new show, including Smith, Quincy Jones, Benny Medina as well as creators Andy & Susan Borowitz.
