Bel-Air is the latest remake to make it to television. What started as a mock trailer by Morgan Cooper went viral and quickly turned into a Peacock original.

One member of the team that brought this reimagining of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to life was Rasheed Newson, who has worked on numerous shows, including Lie to Me, The Chi, and Narcos.

Additionally, his debut novel My Government Means to Kill Me comes out in August of this year to tell a “queer coming-of-age story, following the personal and political awakening of a young gay Black man in 1980s NYC”.
