Now here’s a Hollywood remake I can get behind. But it’s not a true remake, more a different take on a childhood favorite.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is getting a reboot thanks to… well, the internet. “Bel Air” is a serious drama series that Will Smith and Morgan Cooper are putting out to major networks like HBO and Netflix. It’s supposed to be a deeper, realistic and emotional take on the classic comedy sitcom. It touches on real-word issues like classism, racism, and family drama with characters that we already know and love. Personally, I think it’s a great idea and perfect for the world we live in now.

I wonder what other classic shows would make for a gritty remake… maybe the Rugrats were actually babies with really poor parental supervision, or Hey Arnold’s football head was a serious medical condition that wasn’t addressed when he was young enough to wear a baby helmet? Whatever the case, catch me binge watching this entire series as soon as it comes out.
