The Americans

Preview by Jack Foley

THE Americans is a tense and gripping spy drama set in 1980s America during The Cold War. Following on from its successful run on ITV1 it is released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 3, 2014, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

The brand new and critical acclaimed series The Americans follows the lives of Elizabeth (Keri Russell, Mission: Impossible 3, Waitress) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys, Brothers & Sisters, The Edge of Love) – a seemingly normal, suburban couple living in Washington DC with their unsuspecting children.

However, behind closed doors there is a different story of espionage and deception. The Jennings are actually undercover soviet KGB officers, aiming to lead an outwardly inconspicuous life while secretly waiting for their cues from the Russian government.

What ensues is an edgy and sexy tale of lies as they continue to convince their children, as well as their new and suspicious FBI agent neighbour Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich, Backwash, Warrior) who specialises in cracking down on Russian spies, that they are the wholesome family they appear.

Packed with exclusive extras including interesting features on Perfecting the Art of Espionage, Ingenuity Over Technology and Executive Order 2579: Exposing The Americans, immerse yourself in all things spy from the comfort of your own sofa.

The Americans is released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 3, 2014, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
