This is something that even experienced marketers don’t seem to fully grasp, and here is proof:
At 10th September of 1990, NBC began airing the series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." The show stars Will Smith as a fictionalized version of himself, a street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia who is sent to move in with his wealthy aunt and uncle in their Bel Air mansion after getting into a fight on a local basketball court. In the series, his lifestyle often clashes with the lifestyle of his relatives in Bel Air. The series lasted for six seasons and aired 148 episodes from September 10, 1990, to May 20, 1996.
"Now, this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down, and I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air!"...and so it begins one of the most popular sitcoms of the 90's - "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
This Monday night fixture for NBC through much of the 90's would prove to be most remembered (it seems) as the showcasing to mainstream America the Fresh Prince, previously renowned of the popular '80s rap duo DJ Jazzy Jeff Featuring the Fresh Prince. Kind of a shame, really.
This show had such an easy style and relaxed repartee (as per the show's mainstay of running outtakes during each show's ending credits) that it was easy to enjoy. Perhaps not riotously funny, but the writing was crisp and the chemistry between and among cast-mates made the stories enjoyable.
Will Smith plays a character named, you guessed it! - Will Smith, a fun-loving kid from East Philadelphia who moves (or is forced to move,as per the theme song) out to live with his rich relatives in Beverly Hills, the Banks: Uncle Phil Banks (James Avery), his Aunt Vivian Banks (Janet Hubert-Whitten), his silly cousin Carlton Banks (Alfonso Ribeiro), his showoff cousin Hilary Banks (Karyn Parsons), the cute young cousin Ashley Banks (Tatyana Ali) and the amusing butler Geoffrey (Joseph Marcell).
Throughout the show we have misunderstandings, not very successful birthdays, dinners, romances, cute kids and of course, the cool Will Smith being cool and funny at the same time.
The obvious clash of cultures, Will's street smarts vs. the Banks' polished perceived gentility, supplied enough plot lines for the first two seasons, with the rest of the show's run a chance to showcase Young Will's acting prowess and expand on the other characters.
Will Smith is an excellent actor and it was evident in this series. No surprise that he went on to become a huge star and recording artist. His character was very funny and always cracking jokes and making light of things. During the show we got to see all the characters grow.
Hilary went from being a lazy unemployed leach to having successful careers as weather girl and talk show host. Ashley developed from a little girl to a young woman. Carlton developed into a man (he loses his virginity at one point) although never really grows out of his goofy, nerdy persona (Carlton Dance, anyone ?)
Will eventually goes to college and winds up marrying Lisa. Quite a surprise to see WIll who was such a player settle down. Uncle Phil was great in the mentor/father figure role. He's firm but fair. The interaction between him and Will is great as is the interaction between Will and Carlton, they have very good chemistry together.
The relationship between Will and Ashley is also intriguing. Will always looked out for her like a baby sister. She thought he was cool and would be influenced by him much to the chagrin of Uncle Phil. For all the great comedy, however, some of the best scenes of the show were ones of a serious nature that demonstrated the love the cast had for each other. The time Will got shot saving Carlton, the time Carlton overdosed on drugs, the time Will's father came back in (and out of) his life. These were very powerful and moving episodes.
During the fall 1991–92 season, NBC gained two hit television shows to anchor their Monday night line-up ('Blossom' aired immediately after 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'). To gain popularity between the two shows, Will Smith appeared in the Blossom episode 'I'm With The Band' as himself under his rap stage name, The Fresh Prince. That same season, Karyn Parsons appeared in the Blossom episode 'Wake Up Little Suzy' as Hilary Banks. Parsons also appeared in the Patti LaBelle sitcom, 'Out All Night' as Hilary.
ABC Family acquired the series in September 2008, though airing all 148 episodes; originally airing exclusively on Saturday nights, the series was added to ABC Family's weekday line-up in late 2009. On September 29, 2014, Disney/ABC rights to the show expired. Viacom Media Networks got the series back. In October 2014, Viacom Media Networks also gave the series to BET, it also will air on Centric. It also currently airs on MTV's retro block.
Warner Home Video has released the complete series and on August 13, 2015, it was reported that a reboot of the show was in development by Overbrook Entertainment, with Will Smith serving as a producer. While the original aired on NBC, a network for the reboot has yet to be determined.
Every single episode in its six-year run has at least one scene that will get you rolling on the floor, and a decent number of episodes that portray a very important message to its viewers. A program recommended to all the family!
