After Nearly a Year of His Oscar Slapgate, Will Smith’s ‘Pole to Pole’ Is Back in Production

From being a rapper to becoming one of the most prominent actors in Hollywood, Will Smith has come a long way. Over the years, the actor has given countless hit films and shows, cementing himself as one of the greatest there is. However, the 2022 Oscars was one of the most life-changing events in the actor’s life. Smith, who once was every director’s first choice, had to sit back and watch his projects get canceled. But things seem to be getting better for the actor now.

Soon after his Oscar slap gate with Chris Rock, a number of celebrities and directors distanced themselves from Smith. Academy Awards banned the actor and most of his projects were put on-hold or waived off. However, after nearly a year, Smith seems to be rising from the ashes. Not long ago, the actor made his comeback to our screens with Emancipation. And as per recent reports, Smith’s National Geographic and Disney series, Pole to Pole, is also back in production.
