The reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has come home.
Will Smith announced Tuesday on his YouTube Channel that the new series has been signed by Peacock, NBCUniversals streaming service.
We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season order from a pitch, Smith said in the video, which shows him on a virtual call with others including writerdirector Morgan Cooper, whose viral video inspired the new series. Ive been in this business for 30 years, and that does not happen.
Coopers four-minute spec trailer reimagines the comedy starring Smith, which ran on NBC from 1990 to 1996, as a drama. It debuted on YouTube in March 2019.
Smith caught wind of it at the time and called the idea and the video, written and directed by Cooper, brilliant. It has since racked up more than 6 million views.
The new series, like the video, is titled Bel-Air, for the posh Los Angeles neighbourhood where it takes place.
Set in modern-day America, BEL-AIR is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Wills complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air, according to a news release from Peacock.
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.
Smith expressed his excitement about seeing his hit show showcasing a Black family given a modern twist.
The Carlton character -- a Black, young Republican, modern-day? he said. The heat that will be stirred up between these characters. Its like, whats the Hilary character in a world of Instagram and social media?
Smith will serve as executive director of the project, the announcement of which comes on the heels of news that the cast of the original show will participate in a reunion coming to HBO Max.

Date: Sep 11, 2020 Posted By: Roula Lynch
The first promo for the upcoming season of The Voice dropped on Thursday Sept. 10 and, dont worry, its full of all the appropriate social distancing.
The 30-second sneak peek finds Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani coming back to their beloved soundstage and taking their places in the famous red chairs, which already had decent spacing between them, but appear to be even further apart now.
Stefani explains that she and Shelton been quarantining together during the entire break, prompting Legend to quip, Wow, Im sorry Gwen. The show, which returns on Oct. 19, will, of course, be different this time around. Gone are the hugs, high fives and shared microphones of the past, replaced in the promo by Stefani trying to bestow a gift to a possible Team Gwen draftee using a t-shirt gun.
Spoiler alert: its a major fail, but Shelton steps in to save the day by offering a hand via a green rubber glove doinked on the end of a six-foot pole. Its the first time the crew has returned to the Voice soundstage since they were forced to finish the previous season at home in the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown in March.
Season 19 kicks off on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET on Oct. 19.
