We now have a first look at the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' reboot.'
'Bel-Air' re-imagines the series that launched Will Smith to fame as a drama, as opposed to a comedy.
Modern-day America is the setting of the hour-long series. It still tracks Will's journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the mansions of Bel-Air.
According to Deadline, "'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."
The series is a coming-of-age story that "celebrates the strength and love of the Black family", say exec producers and showrunners T.J. Brady and Rasheed Newton.
The added: "We have stayed true to the original premise of the legacy series – Will’s life is turned upside down after he is forced to leave West Philly and lands in Bel-Air with its gated mansions and wealth, however, our new series brings Will and the Banks family into the world as we know it now.
"It’s been incredible to bring these iconic characters to life when you tap them into the cultural pulse of our time.
"The series was the fabric of so many of our upbringings, tied to memories and the joy of seeing ourselves represented on TV so it is important to us to pay respect to its legacy."
Jabari Banks plays Will. In the teaser, he's wearing Jordan's in homage to the original character.
Moreover, Will Smith - who is an exec producer on the series - provides the voiceover narration, which is a dramatic reading of the original theme song.
Aside from Banks, 'Bel-Air' stars Adrian Holmes as Phillip Banks, Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks, Olly Sholotan as Carlton Banks, Coco Jones as Hilary Banks, Akira Akbar as Ashley Banks, Jimmy Akingbola as Geoffrey, Jordan L. Jones as Jazz and Simone Joy Jones as Lisa.
The series debuts in 2022 on streaming service Peacock in the US and on Sky TV and NOW in Ireland.
