One of the most popular 90s TV shows is all set to be rebooted by the man himself. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is looking at a new lease on life.
The 90s have always been fondly remembered for TV shows that brought the family together, Full House has already been in the news for a while now with talks of a reboot even featuring some of the original cast.
Only two years back, Will Smith said in an interview that Fresh Prince was a tragedy, being overly critical about his performance and denying any possibility of a reboot (see video). Apparently he's had a change of heart, seeing that his production house, Overbrook Entertainment, has taken up the project. The hit NBC series ran for a total of six seasons until 1996, and launched Will Smith's career.
Fresh Prince featured Will Smith as a rebellious teenager from Philadelphia, forced to go live with his Uncle and Auntie in Bel-Air. Comedy ensues when he refuses to adhere to their elitist way of life. The chemistry between Will and his cousin Carlton (played by Alfonso Ribeiro) is still hard to beat. Unfortunately the much appreciated James Avery who played Carlton's father, Uncle Phillip, died from complications from open heart surgery in January last year.

Smith will be the executive producer this reboot, while the production is still in early stages. Reports suggest the show will be a modern interpretation of the original, though retaining it's essence. It is to be co-produced by James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
