The British network has made a two-year commitment for the series and expects to premiere it in the coming months.
"The Americans is a first class production with an excellent cast and compelling storylines," said Steve Cornish, senior VP and managing director, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. "We have had a huge response to the show from international broadcasters since we launched it at MIPCOM and are delighted to have secured this two year deal with ITV."
In the U.S., The Americans is slated to premiere Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX. The Cold War-era drama centers on the arranged marriage between two KGB spies who pose as an American couple.
