An updated installment of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air could be making its way to TV with Will Smith in the driver's seat. According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Smith is working on a spin-off series based on the '90s sitcom.
The series will be developed through Westbrook Inc., a cross-platform holding company launched last year by Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. According to the company’s website, Westbrook's mission is to “be the leader in global family entertainment.”
THR's story outlines how Smith, 51, used social media to revamp his career, and whether or not his digital popularity has directly improved his box office stats. The feature details a number of Smith's upcoming projects, as well as other business ventures, which include his and Jaden Smith's JUST Water brand.
It's unclear if the Fresh Prince spin-off has a projected premiere date, but next year may be the perfect time to premiere it since the original series will celebrate its 30-year anniversary in 2020.
Last week, Smith announced a new Fresh Prince-inspired clothing line. Bel-Air athletics line — which is named after the fictional school that his character attended on the show — includes hoodies, tees, sweatpants, socks, and a reversible track jacket.
The items are for sale on willsmith.com until Oct. 14.
