FX has reportedly committed to a new Cold War era spy series titled "The Americans." The series will star Keri Russell along with Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich. Joe Weisberg is slated as executive producer and opened up about the project in an interview with the Huffington Post.
"For the last two years, I've worked with the incredible people at FX, FTVS, DreamWorks, and my personal television guru Graham Yost on this project. More recently, Gavin O'Connor joined our team, and turned the script we'd been working on for so long into a beautiful pilot," Weisberg said in a statement.
"Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, and Max Hernandez were sensational in it, and a joy to be around. To have all of this come to fruition has been indescribably exciting. Really, I'm a writer, and I can't describe it. It's a great privilege and opportunity to get to make this television show. I can't wait to get to work on it."
The pilot for "The Americans" will be directed by Gavin O'Connor and is set to air in early 2013.
