The classic 60s outer-space family “The Jetsons” is reportedly getting the live-action treatment, with Warner Bros will begin to shop the series to broadcast and cable networks in the coming weeks. TVline is reporting that “Family Guy” executive producer Gary Janetti will shepherd the series. Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke will executive produce alongside Janetti.

“The Jetsons”, which ran from 1962-63 was set in the year 2062, which really makes it not too long until “The Jetsons” isn’t really the future but more so the present. Consequently, the live-action remake would be set 100 years into the future.

The futuristic family was also made into a movie in 1990, with Warner Bros still working on a full length animated feature film at this stage.

Not sure if I want this, but it could be good. Maybe. Possibly.

This has potential but it's all on execution, if they keep the 60s version of the future then they'll be going the right path.

I've always liked The Jetsons. Watched them a lot when I was a kid. Not sure a live-action show would be very good, though.

Would have preferred a movie years ago when Danny DeVito was younger and could have played as Mr. Spacely.

Whatever happened to the Flintstones reboot (Family Guy style)?

Flintstones > Jetsons anyway.

True but the Jetsons are still cool

The Seth Macfarlane reboot sadly got cancelled, I don't remember the reasons why but yeah that had potential, it could've been cool and I'm not even a fan of Family Guy or other macfarlane stuff.

I hope it's not an edgy teen melodrama.
