Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett want total control over their upcoming comedy series ALL OF US - as well as producing it, they'll also appear in it with their children.

The screen stars, who are executive producing the show, and their children will make occasional appearances on the series, which is loosely based on their family life.

MEN IN BLACK star Smith says, "There will be a lot of Smiths on and off of the show. I love the day-to-day, week-to-week atmosphere of the sitcom. It's the purest, most natural form of human silly. The energy of the sitcom, I definitely miss that."

All of Us centres on ROBERT, played by Duane Martin, an entertainment reporter whose family includes his fiancee, son and ex-wife.

Pinkett Smith will play Robert's sister, who comes to check out his new love. Smith will do a three-episode arc playing the ex-wife's new boyfriend.
