Actor and rap star Will Smith poses on the set of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" in Los Angeles, Calif., on Oct. 15, 1990.

The '90s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, ran for six seasons and launched Will Smith as a cultural icon. The show followed Smith as a fictionalized version of himself as he moved from Philadelphia to live with his aunt and uncle in the wealthy neighborhood of Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

An upcoming book series reimagines the story with a new character, a fresh princess named Destiny. Author Denene Millner is writing The Fresh Princess series and joined On Second Thought to discuss her work as an author.

"On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott speaks with author Denene Millner.

Millner's publishing imprint, Denene Millner Books, was recently acquired by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers and launches in spring 2020.

Her new GPB podcast Speakeasy with Denene premieres Oct. 24, and she continues to co-host A Seat at the Table on GPB TV.
