NBC’s ‘Allegiance’ Cast and Ep Dismiss ‘Americans’ Comparisons

16 January 2015 11:17 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC’s upcoming drama “Allegiance” — which premieres Feb. 5 — centers around a seemingly normal American family whose parents are secretly Russian spies. If that sounds a lot like FX’s “The Americans” to you, you’re not alone.

NBC's 'Allegiance' team swears they're not ripping off 'The Americans'

16 January 2015 11:12 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

And FX's The Americans came first. So why wouldn't viewers think NBC's Allegiance is ripping off the cable drama? "Watch one or two episodes ands it's pretty clear we’re going in a different direction," said executive producer and director George Nolfi at the TCA press tour on Friday.

TCA: NBC’s “Allegiance” is not “The Americans” … maybe

16 January 2015 10:58 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

NBC’s TCA panel for upcoming spy drama Allegiance (Thursdays beginning FEb. 5), starring Hope Davis, Scott Cohen, Gavin Stenhouse and Margarita Levieva, didn’t do much to quell the notion that the show is too similar to FX’s The Americans. Given the lukewarm reception to NBC’s other spy drama, State of Affairs, we’re thinking Allegiance‘s cover will get blown quickly.

16 January 2015 10:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Is NBC’s upcoming Allegiance just a contemporary, broadcast TV take on The Americans?

Nyet, says the executive producer of the new drama, which centers around a young, idealistic CIA analyst (played by Gavin Stenhouse of the UK’s Iconicles) who is unaware that his parents (Gilmore GirlsScott Cohen and The Newsroom‘s Hope Davis) as well as his sister (Revenge‘s Margarita Levieva) are part of a dormant Russian sleeper cell that has just been reactivated.
