Following on the heels of the announcement that The Jetsons was orbiting Warner Bros.' creative platter as a new animated feature film comes new info that the futuristic family will soon grace the small-screen airwaves in a fresh live-action adaptation.

It'd definitely be interesting to check out a live-action version of the sparkly shiny future of Orbit City, and we look forward to seeing how this project develops. According to the announcement, this fresh take on The Jetsons will be set 100 years from now and will have a comedic edge similar to the classic '60s cartoon.

Sources have confirmed that Warners has enlisted the assistance of Family Guy executive producer Gary Janetti to put the polish on this reboot and will start shopping the project around to interested broadcast stations and major cable networks next month. Janetti will also serve as an executive producer, with Forrest Gump's Robert Zemeckis and Castaway's Jack Rapke.

Are you ready for a live-action Jetsons with George, Jane, Elroy, Judy, Rosie, Astro and Mr. Spacely in the year 2118?
