The reboot of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” has gotten back home.
Will Smith reported Tuesday on his YouTube Channel that the new arrangement has been marked by Peacock, NBCUniversal’s web-based feature.
“We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season order from a pitch,” Smith said in the video, which shows him on a virtual call with others including essayist/chief Morgan Cooper, whose viral video roused the new arrangement. “I’ve been in this business for 30 years, and that does not happen.”
Cooper’s four-minute spec trailer reconsiders the satire featuring Smith, which ran on NBC from 1990 to 1996, as a show. It appeared on YouTube in March 2019.
Smith found out about it at that point and called the thought and the video, composed and coordinated by Cooper, “brilliant.” It has since piled on in excess of 6 million perspectives.
The new arrangement, similar to the video, is named “Bel-Air,” for the opulent Los Angeles neighborhood where it happens.
“Set in modern-day America, BEL-AIR is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air,” according to a news release from Peacock.
“With a reimagined vision, BEL-AIR will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.”
Smith communicated his energy about observing his hit show exhibiting a Black family given an advanced contort.
“The Carlton character — a Black, young Republican, modern-day?” he said. “The heat that will be stirred up between these characters. It’s like, what’s the Hilary character in a world of Instagram and social media?”
Smith will fill in as chief head of the task, the declaration of which goes ahead the impact points of news that the cast of the first show will take an interest in a get-together coming to HBO Max.
