Steven Spielberg will team with a major cable network on an animated mini-series about the world of the future, reports The Wrap.
The TV project is going to speculate on the world 25 to 100 years down the road.
In a statement about the tentatively titled "Future Earth," Discovery said, "The mini-series will draw from a vast number of sources, including the leading futurists, scholars and great minds of today, to dramatize and explore how various facets of our daily lives — health and medicine, technology, the environment, the military, the economy and media — will evolve over the next century."
When Spielberg and other baby-boomers were growing up ABC aired "The Jetsons," a fictional animated show about the future.
DreamWorks Animation and DreamWorks TV are no longer the same company, but will collaborate on this effort, and Discovery said Spielberg will "Personally oversee" the project.
