the fresh prince of bel-air


90s Black Sitcoms, Ranked

The Cosby Show, what has long been considered the greatest black sitcom of all time, celebrates its 30th anniversary in two weeks. That the show’s legendary run is marked by a return to a more diverse television landscape this fall seems fitting: NBC, ABC, and FOX, along with other networks, will debut a variety of shows that cast minority actors in lead roles (several are women of color). This push for more nuanced programming brings to mind the 1990s, a decade known for its rich portrayal of black life through shows like Living Single and Roc. Here, a completely indisputable ranking of black sitcoms that aired between 1990 and 1999.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, Brooklyn-based illustrator Leland Foster teamed up with fashion e-commerce site Lyst to re-imagine what the cast would look like in 2015.

  • Will - Carlton - Ashley  - Phil  - Geoffrey - Hilary
  • “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was so stylish, and so of-its-time as a classic 90s show,” said Foster. “The challenge was to make the Banks family relevant and recognisable, while keeping all the energy of these six very different personalities.”
