A few years ago Morgan Cooper made a trailer (at bottom) for his reimagined version of the hit 90’s tv show, “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” It Morgans version, a decidedly dramatic version, the main character faces modern-day struggles of a kid from the streets.
The mock trailer went viral and eventual Will Smith saw it and he and wife Jada immediately took Morgan under their wing. Before long Peacock was signing a 2 season contract for a real version of the show.
“I’ve been in this business for thirty years and that does not happen,” Smith said in a YouTube video breaking the good news to Cooper.
The series doesn’t come till 2022.
Here’s the Peacock Trailer
The original trailer made by Morgan Cooper in 2019.
