ABC to Produce Live-Action Version of The Jetsons


After multiple live-action versions of "The Flinstones" were released in the late 90's and early 2000's, myself and countless others have envisioned the possibility of "The Jetsons" also getting their chance at a non-cartoon existence.


Hanna Barbera produced 24 episodes of the hit cartoon between 1962-1963, 41 more episodes were released between 1985-1986. A full-length Jetson's movie along with numerous straight to DVD films have since been produced, however there has been no attempt to this point to produce a live-action version.


It's finally going to happen.

Robert Zemeckis, James Rapke and Gary Janetti will executive produce the multi-camera show. Gary Janetti will pen the script.

ABC's "The Jetsons" will follow everyman George Jetson and his family as the navigate through the adventures of regular life 100 years from tomorrow.

No casting announcements have been made at this time. However we have a couple ideas...

The only person I could see portraying Mr. Spacely is Danny Devito.

...and if they decided to add Mr. Cogswell, you can't go wrong with J.K. Simmons.
