Felicity Keri Russell is officially giving TV another shot!
The actress has just signed on to play the lead roll in the FX drama pilot, The Americans.
In the 1980's-set probably future series, Keri plays a Russian spy pretending to be an average American woman, married to and average american man — who is also a spy. Her cover is so deep even her children are clueless to her true identity. Basically, Alias with a family.
The plot revolves around the escalation of the Cold War, the crazyass lifestyle that comes with being an undercover spy, and her husband's growing love for America. (Cause no one can resist falling in love with these here United States!)
Srsly, this sounds like a inneresting show! It's a great concept, and with Russell in the, we put money on the pilot making it to series.
