Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Bel-Air imagines The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through a new, dramatic take on Will’s (Jabari Banks) complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

Inspired by Morgan Cooper’s viral trailer that reimagined the ‘90s sitcom, Bel-Air takes a new approach to this world of swagger, style and aspiration, while exploring Will’s complex journey through a current lens.

In addition to Banks, the hit streaming series also stars Adrian Holmes, Cassandra Freeman, Olly Sholotan, Coco Jones, Akira Akbar, Jimmy Akingbola, Jordan L. Jones and Simone Joy Jones. Also set to return: Justin Cornwell reprising the role of Lamarcus, Karrueche Tran returning as Ivy and Joivan Wade returning as Frederick.
