SAFN Video Of The Day


Ever wonder what The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air might look like if it suddenly returned to the airwaves in 2019? Well, given Hollywood’s current penchant for giving everything a “dark” and “gritty” backstory, it would probably look quite a bit like this superbly made fan film by director Morgan Cooper. Simply titled Bel-Air, it gives Will Smith’s young “Will” a considerably more dire origin story while keeping all of the major Fresh Prince beats intact. WILL SMITH is developing a reboot of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" . . . but this time he's not doing it for laughs. This version will be a lot more serious.It's based on a phony trailer that a guy named Morgan Cooper made last year called "Bel-Air", that reimagined the show as a gritty drama. Morgan has been helping Will develop the show for about a year, and there's been interest from several streaming services, including HBO Max, Peacock, and Netflix.
