Will Smith: 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' Reboot Coming Soon

Will Smith is currently in talks to reboot the nineties sitcom 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air'.

The original series revolved around Will Smith, a Philadelphia teen who is forced to live with his aunt and uncle - the sophisticated Banks family - in Bel-Air, California, and the misadventures that happened with his family and friends. TV Line noted that according to multiple sources, the reboot would 'put a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series.'

The publication also reported that a pitch is currently being finalized, after which Overbrook, Will Smith's production company, will begin shopping it around.

Will Smith would work as executive producer on the project, alongside Overbrook producing partners  James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

The 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' reboot was brought up to NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt - as the show originally aired on NBC - at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

Robert said the network was not involved with the project, but that he would 'be happy to talk to Will [Smith> about it.'

Will became a household name after starring on the series, which ran for six seasons on NBC, from 1990 to 1996.

Prior to appearing on the show Will Smith was a rapper, and one part of the successful hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. DJ Jazzy Jeff starred alongside Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as his best friend Jazz.

The series also starred Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, and James Avery, and had a ton of guest stars such as Don Cheadle, Queen Latifah and Tyra Banks.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is the latest Ninties sitcom announced to make a comeback this year including 'Full House,' 'Coach,' 'The X-Files,' and 'Twin Peaks.'
