Now this is a story all about how the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reboot is being made now.
TVLine reports the show's original star, Will Smith, is leading the talks to reboot the show but this time, he'll be behind the camera as a producer. Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the early stages of developing a present-day version of the sitcom.
Plot and character details are still being discussed, but the new reboot will reportedly put a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale, while maintaining the spirit of the original series which ran for six seasons on NBC, before ending in 1996.
If "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reboot gets picked up, Smith would serve as an executive producer in addition to his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
NBC Entertainment Chairman, Robert Greenblatt, said the network was not involved with the project, but that he would “be happy to talk to Will [Smith] about it,” TVLine reported.
