Meet George Jetson, ABC. A proposed live-action TV comedy take on The Jetsons from Back to the Future boss Robert Zemeckis officially has a future at ABC with a put-pilot commitment.

Family Guy alum Gary Gannetti will helm the new multi-cam adaptation of The Jetsons, executive producing alongside Zemeckis and Jack Rapke. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the new series has “a sizable put-pilot commitment,” and “revolves around America’s favorite future family — told through a modern filter” 100 years in the future.

The project is independent of an animated Jetsons movie that Warner Bros. is trying to get off the ground, though Warner Bros. TV produces alongside Nickleby Inc. and Compari Entertainment.

Family comedies are certainly in ABC’s wheelhouse, between Modern Family, Black-ish, The Goldbergs, Fresh Off the Boat and more, but can the far-flung future Jetsons reach the same heights?
