“Set in modern-day America, Peacock’s new one-hour drama series Bel-Air reimagines the beloved sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through a new, dramatic take on Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air,” a synopsis for the show on YouTube reads. “As these two worlds collide, Will ... reckons with the power of second chances while navigating the conflicts, emotions, and biases of a world far different from the only one she’s ever known,” the episode description reads.

In November, Peacock unveiled the a teaser trailer for "Bel-Air," which featured narration from the show’s original star.

Fresh off of "King Richard," Will Smith returned to his "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" roots to narrate the clip for the upcoming series.

Smith somberly spoke the iconic lyrics to the show’s original theme song alongside a clip of the new star of the show, Jabari Banks, swimming underwater before taking his seat on the throne. Banks, who will make his acting debut in the series, was hand-picked by Smith and the show’s creative team.
