Showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields on THE AMERICANS
Writer Joe Weisberg knows a lot about being a spy. He used to be one. The former CIA officer is now the showrunner of the hit drama The Americans.
Set in the 1980s during the height of the Cold War, The Americans centers on a married couple (played by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) who are actually Russian illegals spying inside the U.S.
