Hey guys, Jana here,


Will Smith’s name and company, Overbrook Entertainment, has been linked to what’s been referred to as a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘ reboot, but that’s not quite accurate. The studio is definitely involved in making a family comedy that has a slight resemblance to the series that transformed the Fresh Prince from the rapper we loved, to the on-screen entertainer that’s taken over the world.

While it’s not a re-make of Fresh Prince, what it is, is a fish out of water family story that will parallel the NBC comedy and it’s in incredible early stages of development, no script, no director and no studio attached. The series will, as of now, feature new characters and a new setting. The only similarities will be Smith’s involvement as a producer and the family dynamic. The final product will be executive produced by Smith with his Overbrook partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Just because you can’t hear about ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘ without the theme song creeping into your cranial cavity, I’ll just give you the theme to kick it off. I know, you’re welcome.
