For those already adults when President Reagan was in office -- and might have even driven an Oldsmobile Delta 88, which looms large in the pilot -- the days of Madonna being relevant don't seem distant enough to be a period drama. They are, though, and the series that premieres Wednesday, Jan. 30, does them quite well.
The drama stars Keri Russell ("Felicity") and Matthew Rhys ("Brothers & Sisters") as Russian Kgb spies living in the United States. The pilot explains how Elizabeth and Philip came to live in a suburban house with two children. It flashes between suburban Washington, D.C., of 1981 and 20 years earlier in Moscow, when they were introduced and later assigned to be a married couple in the States.
