Actor Will Smith (shown above at the 'Suicide Squad' presentation during 2015 Comic-Con International) is planning to make a big splash with the tv show that turned him a household name.

According to TVLine, Will and his Overbrook Entertainment company are developing a present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the "fish-out-of-water" concept that eventually became "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."  Will is on board to serve as executive producer of the project which is still in its earliest stages of development.

While an official "plot" for the future series has not been revealed to the press, we do know a pitch is being finalized and will be shopped around in the coming weeks.

Once a concept is finalized, we sure hope Will and Jada (she's also producing) will hire former castmembers of "FPOB" to appear in some form or fashion. And this might be a long shot...but it's time Will and Janet Hubertkiss and make up.

Wouldn't it be great to see the "first" Aunt Viv back on television?
