Will and Jada Working on Fresh Prince Reboot?
If TV Line has it right, West Philly native Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are planning to reboot Smith’s iconic ’90s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
According to multiple sources, Smith’s production shingle, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the very early stages of developing a present-day Fresh Prince reboot that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series. …
I’m told a pitch is being finalized now and Overbrook will begin shopping it around in the coming weeks. Smith would serve as an EP alongside his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
TV Line reports that rumors that NBC is involved with the project were quashed by Chairman Robert Greenblatt this week, but he said the network would “be happy to talk to Will about it.”
What do you think? Do we need another Fresh Prince? Do you think Will and Jada will cast Willow and Jaden in it? Vulture does.
