FX Picks Up Keri Russell Drama The Americans

The TV Gods have answered our my prayers: Keri Russell is headed back to the small screen. FX has placed a 13-episode order for The Americans, a Washington DC-based period drama starring the Felicity actress and Brothers & Sisters‘ Matthew Rhys.

The ambitious project, from Joe Weisberg (Falling Skies) and Graham Yost (Justified), is set in the early ’80s and centers on two KGB spies, Phillip (Rhys) and Elizabeth (Russell), posing as married Americans in suburban DC. Despite their arranged union, the couple’s bond grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War. Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan (Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent working in counter intelligence.

“We’re proud to welcome The Americans, a taut series that crackles with incredible performances rooted in character perspectives never explored on a U.S. television series, to FX’s line up of quality dramas,” said FX president John Landgraf in a statement. This marks Russell’s first full-time series gig since the cancellation of her short-lived Fox comedy Running Wilde two years ago.

Excellent news.

Sounds good as a show too and it will be nice to see more of Matthew on TV.

Now we just need an airdate for The Scapegoat and we'll be grand.

The dispatch-day for "The Scapegoat", according to Amazon, will be 24 September. I wonder if they will still have time to broadcast it before that date. Schedules are made in advance, I think?

I agree, good news for Matthew. :D

They should do I hope, re scheduling wise.

If not, I'll get the DVD.

Finally we see Matthew on TV again... I have to find out though how I will do, to watch it. I think I'll have to ask my husband... he knows some tricks :)

I am curious to see this show, it sure sounds like something I could like :)
