ABC has Smith pilot in crosshairs

ABC has given the green light to Mr. & Mrs. Smith, a one-hour pilot based on the hit feature that starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The film's writer, Simon Kinberg, penned the pilot script, about John and Jane Smith, a married couple who both work as assassins. He described the series project as "Married ... With Children with guns."

The pilot takes place about six months after the events in the 2005 feature, which grossed more than $186 million in North America. The Smiths have bought a new house in a new suburb and have reestablished their businesses, but the attraction and sexual spark they had found at movie's end has dwindled, and they are back dealing with marital issues.

"In a way, the show is all about the marriage," Kinberg said. "It is a show about any married couple trying to balance professional and home life."

The film's director, Doug Liman, is on board to shoot the pilot.

Maybe. It depends who they cast. They have to have the exact right people for a show like that to be good.
