The Americans, which premieres on January 30, is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) – grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War.
