Get ready for a live-action take on the classic animated series The Jetsons.

U.S. network ABC has ordered a live-action, multi-camera sitcom adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera show, which originally debuted on the network back in 1962 before it was brought back in 1984.

ABC has given the new show a put pilot order, meaning that penalties will be handed down if it fails to lead to a series. Gary Janetti, whose credits include Family Guy, Will & Grace and Vicious, will be executive producing alongside Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Jack Levine.

EW broke the news, reporting this new take of The Jetsons will be “set 100 years in the future and looks at America’s favourite future family through a modern filter.”

Stay tuned for more as this one comes to life.
