Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are uniting for an Amazon series, Mr.& Mrs. Smith. The Atlanta star referred to the series, coming to Amazon in 2022, on his Instagram story Friday.The project, a reboot of the 2005 New Regency film starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, has quietly been in the works for months and stems from the Fleabag creator’s overall deal with Amazon.

Waller-Bridge and Glover will create and star in the series. Francesca Sloane (Atlanta, Fargo) — who is also under an overall deal with Amazon — is also attached as a co-creator and  will serve as showrunner. New Regency’s Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer will also exec produce, as will Jenny Robins of Wells Street Films.

The updated Mr. & Mrs. Smith marks a teaming of Emmy winners Glover and Waller-Bridge who both have a history of creating and starring in their own material. Glover, who has been shopping for an overall deal and has drawn interest from outlets including Amazon, continues to have Atlanta in the works at FX. The series marks Waller-Bridge’s follow-up to Amazon’s Emmy-winning Fleabag.

The original Mr. & Mrs. Smith grossed $487 million worldwide when it was released in 2005.

The reboot involves the original producers.
