And if you think that sounds weird, wait till you read the description.
Because no, this is not a second coming of Still Star-Crossed (WHY DID YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME ABC, WHY?). This is just …eh …the only fair word as this point is weird, I guess.
Deadline reports that he show, from writers Jay Scherick and David Ronn, with Julie Ann Robinson directing, will involve the later’s production company CannyLads Productions. Universal TV is the studio behind this.
Romeos and Juliets will focus “on a badass, tough-as-nails female CIA operative who is forced to partner with a handsome, self-absorbed agent from the CIA’s elite ‘Romeo and Juliet’ division — agents who are trained to use sex and charm to keep America safe”
No, we really have no idea what that means, either. We just know it sounds creepy as hell.
Branded as a light drama, the show is meant to be in the same vein of ABC’s The Catch.
