New Youtube Originals Five-Day Event Premieres Monday, November 8, On WILL SMITH’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL
YouTube Originals and Will Smith recently debuted the highly-anticipated official trailer for new six-part unscripted series “Best Shape of My Life,” premiering Monday, November 8, with episodes 1 and 2 followed by new episodes premiering daily only on Will Smith’s official YouTube channel. This emotionally packed five-day event from Westbrook Media peels back the curtain on what makes Will Smith truly tick as he is pushed to his limits physically, mentally, and emotionally.
What starts as a docu-follow about Will’s desire to go from the “worst shape” of his life to a new movie star body evolved into a deeper, darker and more profound journey into Will’s psyche. With “Best Shape of My Life,” Will finds himself questioning the very behaviors that have led to his success – and ultimately it’s on this search where his healing can begin, featuring meaningful moments with his family and those closest to him. This marks Will Smith’s second project with YouTube Originals. In his first, “Will Smith: The Jump,” he accepted the ultimate challenge to bungee jump from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on his 50th birthday for charity in 2018, resulting in nearly 18M views in the first 48 hours.
