Showrunner Dave Erickson Talks Fear The Walking Dead

18 May 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In a recent interview, Fear The Walking Dead showrunner Dave Erickson discussed the setting, characters, timeline, and many more details on The Walking Dead companion series.

Speaking with THR, Erickson discussed Fear The Walking Dead in detail, providing some insightful glimpses into the early days of the living dead uprising and giving us plenty to look forward to:

Erickson on how the companion series compares time-wise with the first episode of The Walking Dead:

"The goal was to loosely track the period of those four or five weeks that Rick Grimes was in his coma. I wouldn't say that we end the season at the exact same point where Rick wakes up, but it'll loosely be in that time frame. Things will have gone very bad by the end of season one."

On how Kirkman doesn't want to divulge what caused the zombie apocalypse, preferring instead to explore its »

News Nuggets: With many secrets exposed, was this the best season of 'The Americans' yet?

23 April 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Brian Lowry proclaims this season of "The Americans" its best yet following Wednesday's third season finale. Spoilers Ahead. He says the FX drama derived "considerable strength" from the main storyline involving characters played by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as they finally told their teen daughter they are really Russian spies. In the final episode, mother and daughter covertly visited Russia, a murder took place in Washington, and FBI agent Beeman (Noah Emmerich) almost lost his job. The season ends with daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) on the phone with her pastor giving up her family secrets. Lowry also praises the "enormous touch of class" brought by guest star Frank Langella as their Russian handler in America. Variety -Break- Ray Romano will host a special devoted to the 33-year late night run of David Letterman. The 90-minute CBS program airs May 4 and will include clips highlighting his best interviews, top 10 lists, »

‘The Americans’ Finale: Holly Taylor Talks Paige’s Big Reveal

23 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: This interview discusses plot points surrounding both season two and season three of “The Americans.”

The Americans’” Philip and Elizabeth Jennings have been outed. But it wasn’t poor, suffering Martha (Alison Wright) who fingered Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell’s Soviet spies living among the Washington, D.C., middle class. And Noah Emmerich’s FBI agent Stan Beeman is still seemingly blissfully unaware that he’s conveniently living nearby them. Instead, it was the Jennings’ daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) who aired her family’s dirty laundry. Sobbing on the floor of her bedroom, she calls the overly involved Pastor Tim (Kelly AuCoin) to say that “they’re not who they say they are. They’re not … Americans.”

Variety chatted with Taylor about that scene and what it means for Paige — and her parents’ — future on the FX drama.

‘The Americans’ Finale Caps FX Drama’s Best Season (Spoilers)

22 April 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Americans” has completed its most satisfying season, while striking a blow for that much-maligned staple of serialized drama, the irritating teenage child. Deriving considerable strength from a storyline that saw the central couple faced with a dilemma regarding their daughter, this FX series didn’t tie up many loose ends with its third-season finale, but certainly left plenty of tantalizing threads to explore between now (or really, 1983) and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

There were obviously other factors that enriched the season that closed Wednesday (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), including the beleaguered Martha (Alison Wright), who had the misfortune (some might call it hair-raising) to fall for a Soviet spy; and the unlikely partnership between FBI Agent Stan (Noah Emmerich) and Russian embassy operative Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin), joined in their eagerness to find a way of saving Nina (Annet Mahendru), the woman with whom both were involved. »

‘The Americans’ Season 3 Finale Postmortem: Joel Fields On the Martha Mystery, Reagan Speech

22 April 2015 8:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warning: The following interview contains spoilers for the Season 3 finale of “The Americans” titled “March 8, 1983.”

How much longer can Philip and Elizabeth Jennings hide the truth? The carefully crafted lies of the undercover Soviet spies played by Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell are slowly leaking out. In the final four episodes of the season, their daughter Paige (Holly Taylor), Philip’s “second wife” Martha (Alison Wright), and now, it appears, Paige’s confidante Pastor Tim (Kelly AuCoin) all learned the couple’s true identities. During the FX drama’s eventful finale, Philip almost even came clean to Sandra Beeman (Susan Misner), the soon-to-be ex-wife of his FBI agent neighbor, Stan (Noah Emmerich).

Meanwhile, Stan saw his own covert plan to reunite with exiled lover Nina (Annet Mahendru) go up in flames when he finally revealed the details to horrified boss Agent Gaad (Richard Thomas). But even as Stan lost a friend in Gaad, »

Exclusive Interview With Annet Mahendru On The Americans And Penguins Of Madagascar

1 April 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX’s announcement that the slow-burn spy thriller, The Americans has been picked up for a fourth season means that fans can look forward to more powerhouse performances from its stars. The series, which follows a pair of married Kgb agents, features harrowing turns from Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as well as supporting players Noah Emmerich and Annet Mahendru.

As Nina Sergeevna, Mahendru has become the show’s breakout cast member. The role, which was initially part of a four episode arc, has been crucial to the show’s gripping three-season run. An American-based Kgb agent, Nina is blackmailed into working for the FBI and eventually becomes a double agent. But playing both sides comes at a cost and by season three, she finds herself in a Moscow prison.

Born in Afghanistan to a Russian mother and Indian father, the multilingual Mahendru has cited her “nomadic” upbringing as being »

Rejoice, Wig Fans! 'The Americans' Renewed for Season 4 at FX

31 March 2015 12:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Jennings' mission will go on for at least one more year. FX announced today it has renewed its critical darling "The Americans" for Season 4, ending any speculation that the ratings and lack of awards traction could spell doom for the undeniably excellent series. Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields' period spy thriller will return in 2016 with 13 new hour-long episodes. Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Noah Emmerich and a lengthy list of standout supporting players — including Frank Langella and Annet Mahendru — make up the cast of this under-rated (literally) drama. Despite dipping slightly in the key demo (where it's down 4 percent against Season 2 in Live+7 ratings) and overall viewership (down 6 percent), "The Americans" is a respected staple of a network looking to compete with the very best originals departments out there. It's also seen long-term growth in DVR viewing, where the Season 3 viewership continues to grow compared to past seasons, presumably from. »

To get you fully prepared for this highly-anticipated spinoff, we take a look at the characters, the story and the location. Take a look at our handy guide to all things Fear the Walking Dead below:

The Americans’ Costa Ronin Talks Oleg’s Mission, Trusting Stan & If He’ll Ever Meet Philip and Elizabeth

30 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s been an interesting year so far for Oleg Burov in Season 3 of The Americans. After going up against FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) in last season of FX’s spy drama, Oleg has been forced to work together with his former enemy, as the two men have become unlikely allies in an attempt to help free the woman they both love, Nina (Annet Mahendru), from a Russian prison. So do Oleg and Stan really trust each other, and will we see them continue this mission in final four episode of The Americans‘ third season? That was just one of the question I got to ask Costa Ronin, who plays Oleg on the FX series. However, that wasn’t until after he and I had a lengthy discussion about Philly cheesesteaks (once he learned that I’m from Philadelphia), and I tried to explain why Jim’s is better than Geno’s and… »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I won't be able to ride the trains the next time I'm home... "Being married and being at war do not always go together." -Reuben Before we even get to the opening credits, "Divestment" offers us a series of interrogations, and discussions of interrogations:  Elizabeth and Philip and Reuben try to get their South African prisoners to talk, Martha and other FBI staffers gossip about Walter Taffet's interviews about the bug in Agent Gaad's office, and Nina returns to the prison interview room to learn that if she can coax information out of Anton (the refusenik scientist kidnapped by Philip and Elizabeth in season 2) the way she did with Evi, she can get her sentence ended immediately. Throughout the episode, we are presented with characters who are trapped and characters who get to go free, and often the only difference between the two, »

The Americans, Ep. 3.07: “Walter Taffet” is filled with suspense

12 March 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Americans, Season 3, Episode 7: “Walter Taffet”

Written by Lara Shapiro

Directed by Noah Emmerich

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX

Something is rotten in the CIA, as Agents Gadd, Beeman, and Aderholt discover in “Walter Taffet,” this week’s installment of The Americans. Martha has been spying on her co-workers for a while now, as a favour to her husband “Clark,” and the episode finally sees her misdeed being acknowledged.

The moment comes across as a welcome shock after a couple of fairly uneventful hours (with the exception of Nina’s betrayal of her cellmate and a few other events). While the recent episodes have been compelling, and certainly effective in developing the characters (most notably the triangle between Elizabeth, Phillip, and Paige), they mostly haven’t trafficked in the heart-in-your-throat type of feelings, which The Americans does better than nearly any other show on television. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, »

The Americans’ Resident FBI Agent on How to Direct an Episode of Television

12 March 2015 5:59 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Noah Emmerich, who has played troubled FBI agent Stan Beeman on three seasons of FX’s spy series The Americans, directed his first episode of the show this week. It was his first time behind the camera in any professional capacity, and as it happens, Lara Shapiro’s script required him to work in a lot of different modes. There were straightforward dialogue scenes, a car accident and a street fight, several silent or near-silent moments of suspense and nonverbal communication between spouses, even a quasi-lyrical opening shot that brought the show closer to poetry than its stoic Russian temperament usually allows. We talked with Emmerich about his first time behind the camera on The Americans, and took the opportunity to ask some basic questions about what it means to direct an hour of TV on a brisk schedule and a tight budget. His motto is the same as the »

‘The Americans’ Q&A: Noah Emmerich Talks His Directorial Debut and Picking Philip’s Wig

11 March 2015 8:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Americans” season 3, episode 7, titled “Walter Taffet.”

Noah Emmerich has been angling to direct an episode of “The Americans” since season one. The thesp, who plays FBI agent Stan Beeman on FX’s Cold War drama, asked the showrunners early in the run what it would take for him to get to try his hand behind the camera.

They told him to take advantage of being on the show and soak up every aspect of production: From the initial production meetings all the way through the editing and sound mix. “Any time I had time off as an actor I would hang out and observe what I could,” Emmerich says. By the end of season two, Emmerich knew he had the gig.

He didn’t know it would be such a doozy of an episode. Among the events of tonight »

Review: 'The Americans' - 'Walter Taffet': Never break the chain

11 March 2015 8:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I'm not a part of this discourse... "Is this how it's gonna work?" -Philip "Walter Taffet" opens with Philip in the laundry room listening to a radio news report about the dire situation in Afghanistan, a look on his face that makes clear he is thinking of the son he has never met, and who is too far away for him to protect (beyond whatever he can accomplish by having sex with a 15-year-old girl, that is). He walks through the rest of the house and goes to see Paige, who's physically near enough to wrap his arms around, and learns that Elizabeth has now moved her beyond his emotional grasp. Whether near or far, his children are at the mercy of forces he can't do anything about, and one of those forces is the wife he couldn't possibly feel more distant from. »
