Peacock has released a first teaser for Bel-Air, a dramatic reimagining of the classic Will Smith sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which stars Jabari Banks as Will and follows the teenager’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air; watch it here…
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. 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.
Bel-Air stars Jabari Banks as Will, 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, Simone Joy Jones as Lisa.
Bel-Air is coming to Peacock in 2022.
