    The series takes a sometimes darkly comic look at two KGB spies posing as a normal suburban couple, Phillip (Matthew Rhys, Brothers & Sister) and Elizabeth (Russell), whose mission remains a secret even to their children, but begins to come undone by Phillip’s growing attraction to the American way of life, and the additional pressure of finding out their neighbor, Stan (Noah Emmerich), is an FBI agent working in counterintelligence. The couple must also contend with a progressively more real and intimate relationship, while they navigate the complex web of spies and informants they are responsible for.

    The Americans comes from Justified and Falling Skies executive producer Graham Yost and is written by Falling Skies writer Joe Weisberg – who is also a former CIA agent. So far, Weisberg is most well known for his work on TNT’s alien invasion drama, but with his firsthand knowledge of the intelligence community, he stands to breakout with this new series. Yost, meanwhile, has dished out three acclaimed seasons of southern-fried justice with a side helping of dark humor onJustified, making FX eager to have his talents on board this series.

    The Americans will mark the first lead role in a drama series for Russell since she was on the J.J. Abrams hit Felicity. Since then, Russell has popped up in Abrams’ feature directorial debut, Mission: Impossible III, and was most recently seen on the FOX comedy Running Wilde,

    Nervous about Yost spending so much time on this when he has Justified on his plate, but I guess Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk can do it.  Then again, their shows are Glee and American Horror Story.

    I actually think AHS is good this season. It’s mix of camp and horror homage is clicking. The first season didn’t do anything for me,

    Can’t wait for this show. I’m fairy intrigued. Looking forward to another wonderful Keri Russell performance after The Upside of Anger and the underrated Waitress.
