Winter TV 2013: Must-See New Shows

The Americans (FX)
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 10/9c

What if Mr. and Mrs. Smith were Russian spies? This 1980s-set drama tells the story of Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell), two KGB spies posing as Americans in Washington, D.C., shortly after Ronald Reagan’s election. The longer they stay on assignment, their arranged marriage — complete with completely clueless kids! — becomes more and more real. But with the Cold War heating up and a FBI agent neighbor (Noah Emmerich), things could get messy quickly. Justified’s Margo Martindale will recur.
