The Fresh Prince reboot we’ve been waiting for has finally dropped. But, where can you find it in the UK?
Rather than being a sequel to the original American sitcom, Bel-Air is a more dramatic retelling of the same story. The concept is based on a fan-made trailer by Bel-Air executive producer Morgan Cooper that managed to catch Will Smith’s eye on YouTube back in 2019.
The series, which was later announced in 2020, follows Will Smith (the fictional one, not the real one) as he’s catapulted from his life in West Philadelphia to the rich neighbourhood of Bel-Air and stars Jabari Banks as Smith.
