Will Smith continues to put the work in.
According to a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, Smith’s entertainment company, Westbrook Inc., confirmed that a “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” spin-off is in the works. As of right now, the details are kept to a minimum. “In addition to producing Smith-fronted film projects, Westbrook is developing a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air spinoff series (he still earns hefty royalties from the 1990’s NBC sitcom, now licensed to air in 193 territories),” the article reads.
Back in July, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will announced the launch of their entertainment company. “We are so excited to announce this new venture and fully immerse ourselves in all areas of the media and entertainment space,” Jada and Will said in a statement. “With our incredible team of family, chosen family, and longtime business partners, Westbrook Inc.’s mission is to spread positive ideas, art, and products that entertain and empower the greatest number of lives, inspiring the next generation of artists to do good in the world.”
In more Will Smith-related news, the 51-year-old recently unveiled his “Fresh Prince” inspired clothing line. “I put my thang down, flipped it and reversed it. Then I put it on sale. NEW @FRESHPRINCE MERCH! Link in bio,” he wrote as his Instagram caption.
In the video uploaded to his social media account, Smith showcased the versatility of his threads. “This is regular. It’s just a sweatsuit. It’s just a sweatsuit ... until it’s not just a sweatsuit!” Smith says while modeling the tracksuit jacket. The collection pays homage to the uniform that characters Will and Carlton wore while attending Bel-Air Academy. In terms of price, the collection ranges from $6 to $200.
In addition to that, Smith’s Bad Boys For Life film, which he stars in alongside Martin Lawrence, is expected to debut in January of 2020.
