A show that was a favorite in the 1960s is going to look a lot different when ABC brings it back. That’s because the planned reboot of the prime-time cartoon “The Jetsons” will be a live-action series this time around.
Deadline reports that the multicamera project received a put pilot commitment from the network, with Robert Zemeckis executive producing.
“The new version will be written by Gary Janetti, who has background in both multicamera and animated comedy series, having worked on NBC’s ‘Will & Grace’ and Fox’s ‘Family Guy,'” Deadline reports. “Warner Bros. TV, whose sibling Warner Bros. Animation absorbed Hanna-Barbera two decades ago, is the studio.”
The original series first aired on ABC back in 1962-63.
