Will Smith posted a video breaking the news that Bel-Air, a drama series inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that is based on Morgan Cooper's short film, has been ordered to series at Peacock with a two-season pickup. Smith announced the deal to Morgan and the adaptation's co-writer Chris Collins. “We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season-order from a pitch,” Smith said. “I’ve been in this business for thirty years and that does not happen. They ordered two full seasons of Bel-Air based on the quality of the pitch and the work that you guys have done. So I want to say congratulations. I am hyped.” According to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, "the project was pitched to streamers last month, drawing strong interest and big commitments, including multiple straight-to-series orders, to set up a bidding war. I hear it went down to Peacock and Netflix, resulting in a two-season pickup." Cooper will direct the series, while Collins will serve as showrunner. Both will serve as executive producers, along with Smith.
