The clip reexamined the comedy’s central premise through dramatic vision, exploring the personal and socio-economic conflicts inherent in the story.

“Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air is a dramatic one-hour analogy to the 1990s sitcom The Prince of Bel-Air that is inspired by the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of west of Philadelphia to the mansions of Bel-Air. With a reinvented vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the conflicts, emotions and inherent prejudices that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still offering nods to the original series, ”it reads. the official synopsis.

In addition to directing and co-writing the new series, Cooper will also executive produce alongside Smith. TJ Brady and Rasheed Newson will serve as showrunners. Bel-Air is expected to debut in 2022.
