California-based prodcos 3 Ball Entertainment and New Regency have partnered to develop and produce a reality game-competition series based on the feature film Mr. & Mrs. Smith (pictured).

The 2005 film – produced by New Regency – stars actors Brad Pitt (pictured, left) and Angelina Jolie (right) as a married couple leading double lives as assassins for competing organizations that assign them to kill one another.

While specific details have yet to be disclosed, the program is said to showcase married couples engaged in a high-stakes game that “offers a twist on the TV competition format.”

3 Ball Entertainment’s unscripted credits include Beauty and the GeekExtreme Weight Loss and Catch a Contractor. The company rebranded from Eyeworks USA and restructured leadership earlier this year.

New Regency is primarily known for scripted offerings in television and film, with titles including the series Malcolm in the Middle and The Bernie Mac Show as well as the films Birdman and 12 Years a Slave.

Production has yet to begin, and a broadcaster is not yet attached to the project. 3 Ball Entertainment’s Todd A. Nelson and Brant Pinvidic will exec produce the series.

“We’re excited to be working with New Regency on a series that will highlight intense marital match-ups worthy of this hit global feature — and what can happen when married people think they know everything their spouse is capable of,” said Pinvidic, chief creative office at 3 Ball Entertainment.
