FX Spy Drama The Americans Premiere Date Set
FX is bringing the 80s back with a new drama series set to arrive next year. We saw a brief trailer for the series back in October and now the network has announced the official premiere date for The Americans, a promising looking drama that follows two KGB spies posing as Americans during the Reagan administration.
The Americans comes from Joe Weisberg and stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as two KGB spies posing as a married couple in Washington D.C.. Even their own kids don't know who their parents really are as they live among other American families during the early 80s. Noah Emmerich plays Stan Beeman, an FBI agent who moves into the neighborhood and naturally causes a bit of tension for the secret spies.
Deadline, The Americans will debut Wednesday, January 30 at 10:00 p.m., which is currently the time slot for American Horror Story. In case you haven't seen it, here's the trailer FX released earlier this fall.
The cast looks good, the period element adds something different to the equation, and the premise sounds ripe with potential for drama and suspense. Plus, it's on FX, where gritty, dark drama tends to happen. From what we've seen so far, I'm optimistic. Now that a premiere date is set, hopefully we'll start seeing more trailers and clips from the series leading up to its late-January debut.
