“This town will try to make you forget who you are and where you came from.”

Set in modern-day America, Bel-Air follows Jabari Banks as Will in the analog of the 90's sitcom that leans into the original idea: Will's complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the shiny mansions of Bel-Air. As his two worlds collide, Will struggles with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one he's ever known.

The new dramatic reboot of Will Smith's '90s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," has released its first trailer. The series will premiere its first three episodes on Peacock Feb. 13, with successive new episodes being released weekly on the platform.

Alongside Banks, other cast members include Adrian Holmes as Phillip Banks; Cassandra Freeman as Vivian Banks; Olly Sholotan as Carlton Banks; Coco Jones as Hilary Banks; Akira Akbar as Ashley Banks; Jimmy Akingbola as Geoffrey; Jones as Jazz; and Simone Joy Jones as Lisa.
