When J.J. Abrams has an idea for a new series, all the TV networks listen in. His latest project delves into the world of spying, action and adventure; and all the networks want it.
J.J. Abrams Throwing Around Spy Idea

The project, which sounds a whole lot like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, centers on spies who are also married. But, with J.J. Abrams take, I guess we should assume lots of flashbacks and twists around every episode.
