Bel-Air (2019) Trailer – Morgan Cooper
The official synopsis for the 2019 Bel-Air trailer by Sun Squared Media was “What would happen if Will Smith made The Fresh Prince today? Bel-Air, a story of a kid from Philly whose life got turned upside-down… in 2019.”
Will Smith announced this amazing news on his youtube channel saying, “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch. I’ve been in this business for thirty years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch.”
‘Bel-Air‘ will be an hour-long series with all characters you love from the original show. The new series was pitched to streaming services last month, according to Deadline and it started a bidding war but the last two contenders were Netflix and Peacock, and as you all know Peacock won.
Morgan Cooper who made the viral trailer will direct and co-write the series with Chris Collins, and Cooper will also be serving as a co-executive producer alongside Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Will Smith‘s production company Westbrook Studios and Universal Television.
