First Boy Meets World, then Full House, then The Notebook, cetera ad infinitum...and now Fresh Prince of Bel-Air! According to TV Line, Will Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment, is developing a reboot of the '90s comedy, which starred the rapper/actor (raptor?). The site claims that Fresh Prince 2.0 will put "a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of the original series." Rather than acting as the show's lead, Smith has signed on to produce the show, whose last episode aired 19 years ago.
