Bel-Air, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot series, has gotten its first trailer!
“Set in modern-day America, Peacock’s new one-hour drama series Bel-Air reimagines the beloved sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through a new, dramatic take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. As these two worlds collide, Will (Jabari Banks) reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known.”Peacock
Bel-Air is a reboot of the classic series and retells the story of the sitcom but now as a one-hour drama series. The series is inspired by a fan trailer by Morgan Cooper and is executive produced by Will Smith. It stars Jabari Banks as the modern-day Will.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air started in 1990 and told the story of teenager Will (played by Will Smith) who, after a confrontation, is forced to move in with his uncle and aunt in Bel-Air. The series ran for nine seasons and was applauded for showing a successful black family along with the growing hip-hop scene at the time. It became a cultural touchstone.
Bel-Air premieres on February 13th on Peacock.
