Check out the trailer below:
The new series will air on Sky and NOW in the UK next month and it has completely flipped-turned upside down the premise of the original sitcom.
Set in contemporary America, the one-hour drama follows a Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.
As these two worlds collide, Will reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he’s ever known.
The new series is executive produced by Will Smith and inspired by Morgan Cooper’s viral trailer that reimagined the iconic, culture-defining ‘90s sitcom.
Bel-Air takes a fresh and raw approach to Will's world while exploring his complex journey through a completely different lens.
Newcomer Jabari Banks will star as Will and former Disney Channel star Coco Jones plays Will’s cousin Hilary.
The ensemble cast also includes Adrian Holmes as uncle Phil, Olly Sholotan as Carlton, Jimmy Akingbola as butler Geoffrey, Akira Akbar as Ashley and Cassandra Freeman as Aunt Viv.
One of the biggest changes we see in the new series is Carlton, who is no longer Will’s awkward and snarky cousin. Instead he is a huge status symbol, drives sports cars, plays sports and engages in public speaking in front of his classmates.
The rest of the trailer reveals Will struggles to fit into his new surroundings, including a new private school just like in the original NBC show.
Peacock is available exclusively on Sky and NOW at no additional cost.
Bel-Air debuts on Peacock in the US on 13th February 2022. It will be available to UK viewers via Sky and NOW the following day.
