Reports are emerging this evening that a reboot of the beloved Fresh Prince of Bel-Air tv series is in the works… with Will Smith as Executive Producer!
According to TVLine‘s sources, Will Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment will be developing the series and are in the very early stages of a modern-day retelling fo Fresh Prince that “puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series.”. Little else is known about the project which is another television comeback of another 90’s hit!
With Will Smith overseeing the project, one would hope that what made the original series so adored will still be present and give that same entertainment to a newer audience who may have never been exposed to the original. Alternatively, we could see a show where Jaden Smith takes over his dad’s old role and gets flipped, turned upside down straight into the cancellation bin.
