George Jetson and his family are coming back to TV in the near future, as a live-action version of the classic ‘60s series is in development at Warner Bros., thanks to ABC network giving the green light for a pilot according to Variety.
While the show would be a sitcom set 100 years in the future that follows the Jetson family, not much info on the new series has been provided yet, and Warner Bros. hasn't commented on the news.
Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis is a notable executive producer to be on board, while Sausage Party director Conrad Vernon is in talks to direct.
