The Jetsons to become live action sitcom

Classic animated series The Jetsons is about to become a live action sitcom.

TVLine reports that Warner Bros. is developing The Jetsons, a live-action sitcom remake of Hanna-Barbera’s beloved ’60s animated series about a family residing in the futuristic Orbit City.

The original Jetsons was set in the year 2062 and ran from just 1962-63. The new Jetsons would similarly be set 100 years in the future.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson declined to comment, but sources confirm that the studio — which has hired Family Guy Executive Producer Gary Janetti to oversee the potential series — will begin shopping the multi-cam project around to broadcast and cable networks in the coming weeks.

The move comes as Warner Bros. continues to develop an animated Jetsons feature film -the last in 1990 featured pop singer Tiffany amongst its voice cast.
