WILL SMITH is developing a reboot of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” but this time he’s not doing it for laughs.

This version will be a lot more serious.  It’s based on a phony trailer that a guy named Morgan Cooper made last year called “Bel-Air”, that reimagined the show as a gritty drama.

Morgan has been helping Will develop the show for about a year, and there’s been interest from several streaming services, including HBO Max, Peacock, and Netflix.
