Netflix is teaming with Westbrook Studios for the first comedy special hosted by Will Smith. The special, which does not have a premiere date, will include surprise celebrity guests, conversation, fresh comedic sketches, musical performances and more. Smith will serve as an executive producer alongside co-head of Westbrook Studios Terence Carter, Miguel Melendez and Sahara Bushue.

Additionally, Smith and Westbrook are at work producing a number of projects across film, television, and digital platforms. Among those is “Bel-Air,” a reimagining of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that has received an initial two-season order at streamer Peacock. The series is based on Morgan Cooper’s viral video that reimagined the NBC comedy series as a drama.
