TV Pilot Club (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) - An LAist Virtual Event

Tuesday, March 9, 2021, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Get together with a few hundred of your fellow TV fanatics to hash out the highs and lows of some all-time quintessential premiere episodes. LAist’s arts & entertainment reporter Mike Roe and a group of nostalgia TV superfans took a deep dive into these small-screen treasures and answered your questions live. 

On March 9, we’re headed to Bel Air. The Fresh Prince moved in with his auntie and uncle in 1990 and burst onto the scene with one of the most iconic theme songs in sitcom history. Rewatch the pilot episode before the event and get ready to talk all about how Will Smith became a star, if you’re hyped for NBC’s dramatic Fresh Prince reboot, and all things fresh.
