It will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel along with Norman Lear himself. It will be directed by 10-time Emmy winner James Burrows.
All in the Family aired from 1971 to 1979. One of its most popular spin-offs, The Jeffersons aired form 1975 to 1985.
Here's a look at the all-star cast that's been announced so far:

Both Lear and Kimmel expressed enthusiasm for the event, especially for the actors who have signed on.
"They have said over and over again that these two shows were meant for the '70s and would not work today," Lear said. "We disagree with them and are here to prove, with two great casts depicting 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons,' the timelessness of human nature. I cannot wait to see what these glorious performers make in our time of these indelible characters."
"The fact that a group of Oscar winners eagerly agreed to play these iconic characters is a testament to the greatness of these shows and their creator, Norman Lear. To be a part of this is a dream come true for me and for everyone involved," Kimmel said.
