The Alphabet network has given a put-pilot order to a live-action sitcom reboot of “The Jetsons,” TVLine has learned. The remake, first reported here back in June, will update the classic 1960s Hanna-Barbera cartoon about a futuristic family, this time as a traditional multi-camera sitcom. Oscar-winning director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump,” “Back to the Future”) will serve as an executive producer, with “Family Guy” writer Gary Janetti penning the pilot.
Janetti’s presence may be a hint about the tone of these new-look “Jetsons,” which “looks at America’s favorite future family through a modern filter,” per the official network description. (This time, when George yells “Jane, stop this crazy thing,” will he throw in a few curse words while he’s at it?)
