"Mr and Mrs Smith" Go to the Small Screen

Mr and Mrs Smith picture


"Mr and Mrs Smith" will be made into a TV series set to be aired via ABC by fall 2007.

Riding on the huge success "Mr and Mrs Smith" has scored in the big screen, a TV series based on the flick is about to come up to the surface as ABC has delightfully given the project green light to enter production, Variety has revealed.

Being eyed as a fall 2007 contender, the show is planned to have its pilot episode shot in March with Doug Liman and Simon Kinberg reprising their duty as director and writer, respectively. Both of them will also executive produce alongside Dave Bartis, who is known for his producing work in "The O.C."

As in the movie, the series will still center on the married assassins couple, only the story begins about six months after the picture left off and has more comedic tone than the big screen version.

"It's essentially 'Married ... With Children' with guns," Kinberg remarked. "The show takes all the marital issues a couple has and blows them up to action-genre size."
