The official trailer for the new Bel-Air series has been released.
The trailer shows a much darker side of the Banks family. It also takes viewers back to the things that actually happened on Philly streets that got Will shipped to live with his rich family in California.
The official description of the show reads, “Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to gated mansions of Bel-Air.”
It goes on to say, “With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions, and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.”
Will Smith is the executive producer of the show and will premiere three episodes on Peacock. Watch the full trailer below.
