The six-episode series follows Smith around the world as he crosses off items from his bucket list.
Pairing his love of adventure and desire to entertain an audience, Will Smith appears in a new show that airs on Facebook Watch. The social media-funded series, Will Smith’s Bucket List will feature the rapper-actor as he attempts to do all of the things he has yet to accomplish while delivering that Smith humor that fans can’t get enough of. For example, he takes wife Jada along with sons Trey and Jaden to sky-dive with him in Dubai, quipping that Willow didn’t want to go because she said it was “dumb.”
“I’ve achieved everything I’ve dreamed,” Smith said in the trailer. “And I know that fear of the unknown is keeping from that divine wisdom. Every time I confront this fear, I feel more free.”
In the six-episode long series, which was most likely inspired by the actor documenting his leap into the Grand Canyon for his 50th birthday last year, fans will be able to watch as Smith confronts his fears. Although he admits that he can’t dance, Smith will rehearse for a feature in a Bollywood film. If that doesn’t make you nervous, Smith will also swim the sharks, race a Formula 1 car in Abu Dhabi, run a half-marathon in Cuba, and even perform stand-up comedy onstage with good friend Dave Chappelle.
The first episode premiered today and new episodes will be released every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. PST here. The show is produced by Smith’s company, Westbrook Entertainment, the same one that brings us “Red Table Talk” with Jada, Willow, and Jada’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
