Keri Russell has landed the female lead in The Americans, an FX drama pilot from Joe Weisberg and Graham Yost, with Gavin O'Connor attached to direct.
Set in the early 1980s, this project centers on two KGB spies, Phillip and Elizabeth, posing as married Americans in suburban Washington, 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.
Complicating their relationship further is Phillip's growing sense of affinity for America's values and the couple's two children, who know nothing about their parents' true identity. Casting continues for Russell's onscreen husband.
