‘The Americans’

Jan. 30 on FX

The heir apparent to "Homeland" isn’t on Showtime—it’s this electrifying period drama on FX starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as a married couple living the seemingly perfect life with their kids in 1980s Falls Church, Va. But these two share a secret: they’re highly trained Soviet sleeper agents operating at the very height of the Cold War. While they’ve gone to great lengths to conceal their true nature, their new neighbor (Noah Emmerich) is an FBI agent who wonders if they aren’t who they seem to be. Based on the gripping pilot, this promises to be a tense thriller as well as an examination of patriotism, zealotry, and identity. And if Russell and Rhys aren’t enough to sell you, Margo Martindale ("Justified") has joined the cast of "The Americans" as well. This is definitely one to watch.
