The FX television series The Americans is shooting around the neighborhood today, with signs posted on Avenue Z, East 7th Street, Kathleen Place, Coney Island Avenue, Avenue X and Avenue Y.
The show, which debuted in January, is set during the Cold War and is the story of two Soviet KGB officers posing as an American couple in the suburbs of Washington D.C., where they struggle to keep their cover under the gaze of their neighbor, an FBI Counter-Intelligence Agency.
It stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich.
