The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is coming back but not as we know it as a huge twist has been thrown in.

 

The teen comedy that brought Will Smith to the attention of TV viewers on both sides of the Atlantic is being given a makeover for its reboot, with its return being reported to be a 'gritty drama'.

 

Will Smith had teamed up with director Morgan Cooper last year to release a trailer for a reimagined version of Fresh Prince in which it is set in the modern day and will bring serious issues to the table like gang crime, poverty and wealth inequality as well as police brutality.

 

Now Morgan, who is a self-confessed super fan of the show which ran for six seasons from 1990 before finishing in 1996, is looking to bring the show back taking a more dramatic path.

The local TV channel where I was trapped for the last bunch of months aired reruns all day. I'd put it on as background noise. Astounding number of celebrity guests, from Jay Leno to Kareem Abdul-Jabar, Chris Rock, Trump, William Shatner, BB King, Hugh Hefner, Dick Clarke, Milton Berle, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Don Cheadle, Evander Holyfield, Riddick Bowe, etc.

I think they should make a new show under a different name.  A parody with ancient actors playing the old roles never look right.
