Will Smith to Produce Two New TV Shows

As the star of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Will Smith was the face of one of the most iconic television shows of the 1990s. In the two decades since the show premiered, Smith has achieved success across multiple platforms. Now, he’s ready to come back to the small screen—this time as a producer.

According to Variety, the Philly-bred rapper-turned-movie star is working on producing two new TV spots. One will adapt his 2005 hit film Hitch, while the other, in a partnership with filmmaker Eva Jin, is centered on a crime-fighting female college student in China. Each are set to be hour-long shows.

Producing is not foreign to Will. Since 2005, he has produced nine feature films, as well as the Broadway play Fela!, which also boasted his wife Jada, ?uestlove of  The Roots and Jay-Z as producers. —Adam Fleischer
