The classic Hanna-Barbera animated show, which originally started as a half hour sitcom, ran for 24 episodes between 1962-63 on ABC before being revived in the 1980s, is now being resurrected by the same network. He will executive produce, along with Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke through their company, Compari Entertainment. Gary Janetti, a writer-producer for series including "Family Guy" and "Will & Grace", with write the pilot.

The show followed a futuristic family George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy Jetson, their robot Alice and their dog Astro. Remaking a classic is a tall order, and if The Jetsons fails to deliver, it will soon be just another relic of the past.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will be co-produced by ABC Studios and Warner Bros. and ABC given it a put-pilot commitment, which means it's very likely to be picked up to series. There was also a feature-length movie Jetsons: The Movie released in 1990, and it served as the last project in the franchise until this year's direct-to-DVD release The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania.

The Jetsons is being rebooted into a live action television series! Warner Bros. TV, whose sibling Warner Bros. At one time, Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Til Dawn) was set to direct the live-action comedy. This new series will be directed by Conrad Vernon, a co-director of Sausage Party. It was a box office hit, even though the movie was panned by critics. Hopefully the Jetsons being adapted for television will do much better.
