A spy planted in America! Total paranoia! A leading actress who first found fame on a young-adult show in the '90s! It may sound like Showtime's very buzzy Homeland, but I'm actually talking about FX's upcoming series The Americans.

The network has finally released a quick promo for the Cold War drama, which stars Keri Russell (Felicity) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters) as KGB spies pretending to be regular old suburban Americans in 1981.

If this is even half seven-eighths as good as Homeland, we're in for a treat.


The Americans debuts February 3, 2013 on FX.
