ABC has greenlit production on a pilot for Mr. & Mrs. Smith, an adaptation of the big-screen thriller that, in addition to its assorted cinematic merits, introduced a boy named Brad to a girl named Angie. Doug Liman and Simon Kinberg will reprise their roles as director and scribe.

Set six months after where the film left off, with the Smiths now residing in a new house in a new suburb, Kinberg likens the TV version to " Married... with Children with guns," telling the Hollywood Reporter, "It is a show about any married couple trying to balance professional and home life." Eyed for a fall 2007 slot and set to shoot in March, casting on the pilot has yet to be determined. Good luck with that.

Maybe the Today's News blog readers can help Mr. Liman out with casting, what do you say? Too bad Eric Dane is busy. (But Charisma Carpenter isn't!)
