“ We’ve stuck with the original premise of the show – Will’s life is turned upside down after he’s forced to leave West Philadelphia and he landed in Bel-Air, with its mansions and its wealth. It has been amazing to bring these iconic characters to life by integrating them into the cultural context of our time. The series formed the basis for the education of so many of us, linked to memories and the joy of seeing ourselves portrayed on television, so it is important for us to pay homage to its legacy.
