Premiered on Prime Video, Mr & Mrs Smith’s story revolves around two strangers who land a job working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travel, and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. Lead actor and creator, Donald Glover meticulously planned every step of the series keeping in mind the essence of the movie but also advancing and updating the same foundation to notch up the thrill and adrenaline amongst the viewers.
Mr & Mrs Smith: Donald Grover met Brad Pitt and talked about the series adaptation: “I feel with remakes, people already hate them”
Glover who plays the role of John Smith talks about meeting the legendary OG Mr Smith aka Brad Pitt while preparing for this series. He said, “I met Brad and we talked a little bit about his movie but I am a very big under-promise and over-deliver. I feel with remakes, people already hate them, they are already mad about it and I like that because that puts you in a place where you have to have a point of view and not do the same thing over.”
He further explained why it was important to have female writers room for the series, “Francesca Sloane who is the writer of Atlanta is an amazing writer, a really sweet person, and a good friend. When we started writing for the series, Mr & Mrs Smith, one thing that we thought was important was to have a female perspective. My main thought behind this was if we are going to talk about relationships, it is imperative to have women’s perspectives throughout the entire series. I thought the female gaze for the whole story would be cool. Apart from me and my brother, everyone in the writing room was female and I genuinely feel that it helped the show.”
In this version, two lonely strangers land jobs working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travel, and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. The catch? New identities in an arranged marriage as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith. Now hitched, John and Jane navigate a high-risk mission every week while also facing a new relationship milestone. Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings for each other. What’s riskier: espionage or marriage?
Mr. & Mrs. Smith spans eight gripping episodes co-created and co-produced by Francesca Sloane and Donald Glover starring Maya Erskine as Jane Smith and Donald Glover as John Smith. The action-comedy series is now streaming in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada on Prime Video.
