SYNOPSIS: THE AMERICANS - SCREENING AND TALK WITH SHOWRUNNER
Creator/Executive Producer/Writer The Americans
Moderated by Eric Kohn of Indiewire
Nominated for numerous awards and two-time winner of the AFI Best TV Program of the Year, The Americans is an exciting cold war series about two Soviet intelligence agents posing as a married couple to spy on the American government. This superb suburban spy thriller, staring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, balances the escapades of espionage with the tribulations of parenting, and in the process, achieves what might appear unimaginable - empathy for the enemy. Explore the ins and outs of this "hide in plain sight" story with show creator Joe Weisberg, who worked in the CIA's Directorate of Operations in the early 1990s.
Season 3, Episode 10 "Stingers" Philip and Elizabeth deploy a plan for the C.I.A. Mujahideen visitors. Tensions at the Jennings home escalate.
