There’s about to be a brand new Prince of Bel-Air, and actually, we’re not mad about it!
NBC’s beloved comedy The Contemporary Prince of Bel-Air is getting the reboot remedy with a little bit of a spin. The brand new sequence might be a reimagining of the basic sitcom, impressed by a viral YouTube trailer created by Contemporary Prince superfan Morgan Cooper. Bel-Air is described as a dramatic tackle Contemporary Prince, following a street-smart child who strikes from Philly to the upper-class neighborhood after getting in hassle with the police. Though reboots of basic reveals have been rampant for years now – and our revival fatigue may be very actual – the Bel-Air trailer that Cooper aired in 2019 is so intriguing, I am unable to assist however be enthusiastic about what the official sequence will appear to be. It is so good that Will Smith could not resist teaming up with Cooper to show it into the true factor!
The trailer provides me Expensive White Folks vibes with an Insecure-esque eye for wardrobe that we really like to see. In accordance with The Hollywood Reporter, Smith, Cooper, Benny Medina, and Quincy Jones are procuring the sequence to varied streamers, together with HBO Max, Peacock, and Netflix. HBO Max at the moment has the unique Contemporary Prince obtainable for streaming, so it might make sense for the reboot to dwell there. However Peacock must be placing within the work to nab the sequence since Contemporary Prince ran for six seasons on NBC. The nostalgia could be a terrific promoting level!
Cooper will cowrite the script, direct, and be credited as a coexecutive producer with unique sequence producers Smith, Jones, Medina, and creators Andy and Susan Borowitz, all set to return as govt producers. Chris Collins (The Wire, Crash, Sons of Anarchy) has been tapped to be showrunner, govt producer, and is ready to cowrite the script with Cooper. Although work hasn’t formally begun on the sequence, and there is not any telling what might be modified as soon as manufacturing correctly begins, Bel-Air is one reboot that would truly flourish from the shadow of its predecessor.
