Are you ready for a story all about how The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air got flipped, turned upside down and remade into a new Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?!?
According to TV Line sources, Will Smith is in the early stages of developing a rebooted version of the sitcom that made him famous, with the actor’s Overbrook Entertainment company ready to produce the series.
Few other details are available at this time, but Smith would serve as an Executive Producer on a similar fish-out-of-water story that maintains the “spirit of the original” program.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ran for six seasons on NBC and went off the air in 1996.
It helped turned Smith into a super, duper star and also launched the career of Alfonso Ribeiro, who went on to win Dancing with the Stars.
Love for the show (and/or for its theme song) has never gone away, either, with the beloved track making multiple pop culture appearances over the past few months.
Between remixes of song and The Carlton Dance, it's like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air never even left...
