Unfortunately, Netflix didn’t let slip who we can expect to see join Will Smith for the special in question.
Behind the camera, Smith is also set to serve as an executive producer on the variety comedy special via his Westbrook Studios banner. Other executive producers include Terence Carter, Miguel Melendez, and Sarah Bushue, also of Westbrook Studios.
The Will Smith variety comedy special is set to debut on Netflix sometime in late 2021.
