It is as if the feds are working for the marketing departments of FX and NBC. Two days before the third season premiere of FX’s The Americans and 10 days before the debut of the new NBC drama Allegiance, as the promo campaigns for both shows are in full swing, the Department of Justice today announced the arrest of an alleged Russian spy posing as a Manhattan banker as part of a Russian spy ring-busting operation. The criminal complaint felt straight out of the Cold War, as do both The Americans and Allegiance — The Americans, about a pair of KGB officers posing as a 1980s suburban American couple, and Allegiance, about a former KGB operative who, along with her American husband and daughter, are part of a reactivated sleeper cell.
