ABC has given the green light to the drama, Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

The pilot will pick up six months after the 2005 Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt film; the Smiths bought a new house in a new suburb and have re-established their businesses as rival assassins, but the attraction and sexual spark they had found at movie's end has dwindled. The Hollywood Reporter adds they are back dealing with marital issues.

Simon Kinsberg is writing the script for the pilot, based on his own film screenplay; Doug Liman will also direct the pilot and executive produce with Kinberg. ABC hasn't announced a spot in the line-up for Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
