Will Smith wants to air a New Year's Eve TV special with David Beckham.

The 'I Am Legend' star and his production company Overbrook Entertainment are developing a new annual programme and want the retired soccer superstar to play a part in the show.

Will, 45, hopes to shoot the programme in Miami and feature close friend David's Miami MLS soccer team in the special.

Actor-and-rapper Will is also tipped to perform during the show - which will be similar to Dick Clark Productions' 'New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' - but it remains unknown if his wife Jada, 42, and children Jayden, 15 and Willow, 13 will take part.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''As of now, it's being shopped to the networks. It would feature musical performances, possibly one by Will.

''They want to do something with Beckham and his focus on his Miami soccer team.''

Overbrook Entertainment was founded by Will and his partner James Lassiter in 1997.

The company produced his Academy Award nominated performances in 'Ali' (2001) and 'The Pursuit of Happyness' (2006).
