DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) In an exciting first for network television the original creators of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Swingers) and Simon Kirnberg (X-Men: The Last Stand), personally transform their hit film into a hotly anticipated TV series. Continuing the success of the worldwide blockbuster, this sexy, fun, escapist series is highlighted by witty banter, amazing stunts and stunning special effects. It is six months later. John and Jane Smith are living undercover as an ordinary professional couple in the suburbs, where no one suspects that they each work as gadget-wielding super-spies for top secret intelligence firms. For security reasons, John and Jane can never truly confide in one another. But what their relationship lacks in communication, it makes up for in intensity. Because when you're not sure if your partner will survive the next day, each moment is that much more passionate... Jordana Brewster (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) and Martin Henderson (The Ring) make the roles their own as they defy death each week on new global missions. Audiences everywhere will fall for this dazzling duo all over again, as John and Jane prove that the pursuit of love is the most dangerous mission of all.
