The series, created by Joe Weisberg, is about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington, DC in the early 1980s. Weisberg, who previously worked for the CIA, will serve as executive producer alongside Graham Yost, who is also the showrunner of FX's Justified.
"Joe Weisberg has written one of the best pilot scripts we've ever read with two richly drawn and indelible characters embarking on an epically exciting, emotional, and morally complex journey," said Nick Grad, executive VP, original programming, FX.
The pilot is being produced by Fox Television Studios and FX Productions.
