Los Angeles, CA – The new reboot of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is set to debut on Peacock more than 25-years after the original sitcom starring Will Smith premiered on television.
A new press communication from Peacock confirms the contemporary dramatic rework of the 90s sitcom, BEL-AIR, is scheduled to premiere in 2022 during Super Bowl LVI Sunday on (February 13).
Following the premiere, the show, which was has been picked up for two seasons, the release schedule is set to feature new episodes of the hour-long series airing weekly on Peacock.
Based on the viral short film director Morgan Cooper released in 2019, BEL-AIR is a contemporary drama focused on reimagining the complicated journey of the series lead, Jabari Banks, from the streets of West Philadelphia into the lap of luxury abundant in the exclusive gated community of Bel-Air.
With executive production coming from Will Smith himself and original show heavy hitters such as Quincy Jones and Benny Medina, the goal for the series is to “dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format.”
