TV show description:      
This period drama takes place in the early 1980s, shortly after Ronald Reagan was elected President.

Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) are a pair of KGB spies who live in a suburb of Washington DC. They are married and have two children — 13-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 10-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati) — who have no idea about their parents’ secret identities.

Philip and Elizabeth are in an arranged marriage but it’s become more passionate and genuine as time has passed. Their relationship however is constantly tested — by the escalation of the Cold War and the relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control.

Complicating their relationship even further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life.

Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent. Stan and his partner, Agent Chris Amador (Maximiliano Hern├índez), are members of a new division of Counterintelligence that’s tasked with fighting against foreign agents on US soil — including KGB Directorate S illegals (Russian spies posing as Americans).

    I don’t know why this show isn’t nominated for an Emmy and its actors along with it. At times it has us on the edge of our seat, excellent writing and acting.

    Really love the show. Matthew is great!! He’s such a good actor and love his character. Keri is excellent also. Find Paige and the actress who plays her really really REALLY annoying. Love Martha, the role and the actress.
