In addition to his top-shelf film work, Smith and his Westbrook Studios are currently producing Bel-Air, a remake of the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series, in which Smith starred during its run from 1990 to 1996. The forthcoming series, which is based on Morgan Cooper’s viral video that dramatically reimagined the popular NBC show, has received a two-season order from Peacock.
Next on his agenda, Smith’s variety comedy special will launch globally on Netflix later this year.
