Peacock is turning a reimagined, modern-day version of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air into a two-seasons series. It’s based on a spec trailer for the show that went viral last year.
As Will Smith himself said, “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch. I’ve been in this business for thirty years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch.”
