“The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” Reimagined As A Dark Drama … Where Did This Come From?



When you hear, “Innnnn west Philadelphia, born and raised,” you instantly feel a perk in your spirit and a pep in your step. ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, and the iconic theme song, will forever be etched in our memories as a classic. It’s a 90s comedy that stands the test of time. But, now someone has taken it and is testing it out as a drama — are you here for it?

Just a few days ago, this trailer popped up on Instagram and has folks wondering what happened to their happy-go-lucky Will from west Philly. The creator, Morgan Cooper, says like most of us, he too enjoyed the original, but “always thought there was more to the story.” So, he created “Bel-Air,” in which he asks, then answers, the pertinent question, “What would happen if Will Smith made The Fresh Prince today? ‘Bel-Air’, a story of a kid from Philly whose life got turned upside-down… in 2019.”

Over 100 members of the cast and crew came together for this reimagined project. Cooper also explained his creative process:

The film stars Jerry Madison as Will Smith. Additionally, here’s who plays the other characters you know and love:
Vy Smith: Sherri Roulette-Mosley
Uncle Phil: Granvile O’Neal
Aunt Viv: Kira Ashby
Calrton Banks: Jelani Talib
Jazz: Rufus Burns
Hilary Banks: Sada K.
Ashley Banks: Khrystal Coppage
Lisa: Jada Paige

No word on a release date or studio, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
