Will Smith Turns 50th Birthday's Bucket List Into Online Series

Explaining that he decided to do everything he ever wanted to do after turning 50, the 'Bad Boy' star announces the launch of his six-episode Facebook Watch series.

AceShowbiz - Will Smith has turned his bucket list endeavours into a new online series for Facebook.

The "Independence Day" star has been checking daring challenges off his list of lifetime goals for the last few months, famously celebrating his 50th birthday in September (2018) by bungee jumping from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon.

The rapper and actor had a camera crew document his adventures for fans, often sharing clips on YouTube and on social media, but now he's taken all of the footage and edited it down for a new six-episode series called, "Will Smith's Bucket List".

The first installment, documenting a skydive with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, was released on social media streaming platform Facebook Watch on Wednesday, February 27, and Will took to Instagram to share the news with fans.

"Okay... For the last few months, I've been shootin' a show called @WillSmithsBucketList," he wrote, alongside the show trailer.

"I turned 50 and I decided I was gonna do EVERYTHING I've ever wanted to do - Swim with Sharks, do Stand-Up and make @JadaPinkettSmith jump out of an Airplane (Which is what happens in the first episode)... Which is STREAMING NOW on @FacebookWatch. Link in my bio. Check it out!".

In a voiceover for the accompanying footage, Will tells fans, "I achieve everything I dream, and I know that fear of the unknown is keeping me from that divine wisdom. Every time I confront this fear, I'll feel more free."

He goes on to promise viewers "action, drama, (and) comedy" from "Will Smith's Bucket List", which will also feature him performing a stand-up routine alongside pal Dave Chappelle, and participating in a Bollywood movie.

The show won't be Will's first time on Facebook Watch - he has previously joined Jada Pinkett Smith, her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and the couple's daughter Willow Smith, on their online popular show, "Red Table Talk".

"There is about to be a king of @Facebookwatch," Jada wrote on Instagram as she celebrated her husband's new announcement. "Every episode is sooooo (sic) good! Welcome to the family @willsmith!!!!!!".
