Donald Glover’s series Mr & Mrs Smith has been receiving appreciation and love from critics and audiences globally for its mind-blowing action sequences, romance, and gripping storyline. The 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. Hence, Donald met with the OG Mr Smith aka Brad Pitt while preparing for the series.
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.”
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 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
