Will Smith set to host and produce comedy special for Netflix

Will Smith is set to lend his comedic talents to a new Netflix comedy variety special, which he will both host and produce. 

The hour-long special will feature an array of guest stars, comedy sketched and live music performances, all crammed together in a smorgasbord of entertainment.

Will Smith is working as an executive producer for the project for his Westbrook Studios production company. According to Deadline, Westbrook Studios is also working on a reboot of the classic Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series. 

As of yet, it is not known who will be performing on the bill, other than the logline tease that it will feature, “noteworthy conversation, fresh comedic sketches, huge musical performances and more.”

However, with Smith’s production company, the might of Netflix, and all the big names that the two entities have connections with, a star-studded line-up is expected soon. 

Netflix has also not yet set a date for the series but considered that production demands are few and far between for such a special, a release date shouldn’t be too far off. 

Smith is proving a very busy star at the moment with ten TV or film projects in either development or production and a further YouTube fitness series in the works, sadly no new summer soundtracks seem to be in the works. Other than that, it’s all go for the Fresh Prince and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with further details as and when they are announced.
