Robert Zemeckis Reportedly Developing Live-Action Jetsons Series

A live-action Jetsons TV series may be in our near future.

According to TVLine, Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis will reportedly executive produce a multi-camera adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Gary Gannetti (Family Guy) will helm the series, and Warner Bros. will begin shopping the show to broadcast and cable networks in the next few weeks.

Like the cartoon, the new series will apparently be set 100 years in the future. But since the original show premiered in 1962, the timeline will now shift from 2062 to 2118. That might make all the flying cars seem a little more plausible.

The original series was a space age counterpart to The Flintstones, and follows George Jetson and his family as they navigate everyday life in the future.

There's also an animated Jetsons movie in the works from Sausage Party co-director Conrad Vernon, but this is reportedly separate from that.

Not much more is known about the reboot, but Zemeckis obviously knows a thing or two about the future. Check out ways that Back to the Future 2 eerily predicted things that actually happened.
