That live action Jetsons reboot is proceeding with ABC (US) proceeding with a pilot, to be filmed as a traditional multi-camera sitcom (uh-oh).
Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future) will serve as an executive producer, with Family Guy writer Gary Janetti penning the pilot.
According to the logline, “Based on the classic cartoon, this multi-camera sitcom set 100 years in the future looks at America’s favorite future family through a modern filter.”
The new version is actually a put-Pilot meaning if the network does not air it will owe substantial monetary penalties to the studio, Warner Bros.
The original Jetsons was set in the year 2062 and ran from just 1962-63.
Don’t try to improve on the theme, guys. They don’t make ’em like this anymore.
