Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Amazon) - S: Donald Glover, Maya Erskine - premieres 2/2/24

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover are rebooting feature film Mr. & Mrs. Smith as a television series for Amazon.

The pair revealed via Instagram stories that they were working on the project for 2022.

The show, co-created by Atlanta writer/producer Francesca Sloane, comes from New Regency and Amazon Studios.

Waller-Bridge has an overall deal with the streamer, as does Sloane.

The 2005 feature film starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a married couple who were rival spies. It was directed by Doug Liman and written by Simon Kinberg. The two re-teamed for a TV series version. It went to pilot at ABC during the 2006-07 season, written/exec produced by Kinberg, directed/exec produced by Liman and starring Michael Henderson and Jordana Brewster in the title roles. The pilot was not picked up to series.

I didn't see anywhere in the article that they are playing the lead roles. They could just be writing or producing it unless they've said differently elsewhere.

Waller-Bridge drops out due to creative differences with Glover

Bummer. But those are two very strong creative voices and it would have been weird to have them collaborate on a creative level.

So it’s a different take on the concept. Sounds like the marriage is cover and going in they’re job partners.

I'm not familiar with Glover's co-lead Maya Erskine. But, this looks like it could be fun.

Everyone should watch Pen15.

I also liked her in a small romcom with Jack Quaid, Plus One.

Great trailer. Glover seems to be working with a great crew, even tho I don’t recognize them by name yet.

Is this 2024's version of 2023's "The Citadel"?

Edit to add: Okay, I watched the trailer... I'll add it to the list but it doesn't look like I'll get to it right away.

I got the same thing from the preview.

Nothing in the trailer has me wanting to watch this.

I watched the first episode last night. It didn't grab me. The tone is very downbeat, and I didn't feel like Maya Erskine has the charisma as a performer to be a good match for Glover..

I won't spoil it, but I bet people will wish the show starred the mystery couple we meet in the opening scenes.

I will say the opening couple had more chemistry. However, I could see things developing.

I did not expect the resolution to the first mission. I was shocked. Kudos for the director for not tipping things off.

Yeah, I watched the first episode, it wasn't bad and I like Glover, but I wasn't expecting how the mission turned out. That was enough to make me keep watching for now.

It’s has the familiar plot and style that lots of the FX shows have. I’m still enjoying it.

It definitely has different vibe than expected but I enjoy it. I don't mind the lead actress, they're not supposed to have chemistry early on so im curious if that changes.

She looks a lot different than she did on Pen15.
