As if the most recent news of a Married... With Children and a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot weren't enough, the unstoppable resurrection of the 1990s continues with Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Apparently, even Will Smith is on board for this monument to aged nostalgia.

TV Line says they have the exclusive story.

According to multiple sources, Smith's production shingle, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the very early stages of developing a present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of Fresh Prince. (An official longline is still being hammered out.) I'm told a pitch is being finalized now and Overbrook will begin shopping it around in the coming weeks. Smith would serve as an EP alongside his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.



Will Smith has hit a bit of a rough patch in his career as of late. Besides Men in Black III, he hasn't had a movie critics enjoyed in at least eight years.

One things for sure, between this, Coach, Full House, Twin Peaks and next January's The X Files, the 1990s are sticking around.

James Avery, best known for his role as the no-nonsense Uncle Phil on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has died. In response to Avery's passing, former co-star Alfanso Ribeiro tweeted, "I'm deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away. He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly."
CBS News reports that, according to his publicist, Avery passed away Tuesday due to complications with open heart surgery. He was 68 years old.

A Pennsylvania school district went on lockdown last week after a student's "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" ringback tone ("shooting some b-ball outside of the school") was misheard as a mass shooting threat ("shooting people outside of the school") by an overly vigilant receptionist at the student's doctor's office.

Family Reunion of the Day: Will Smith recently reunited with his Fresh Prince of Bel Air castmates James Avery (Uncle Phil), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton).

"There's nothin' like spending Holidays with fam!" Smith wrote on his official Facebook page.

The roles of Janet Hubert-Whitten (Vivian 1) and Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian 2) were played by two random white dudes.

BAMF of the Day: "Dancing like Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air on top of a M1068 in full gear, while MLRS rockets fly behind me."

God bless America.
