'The Americans,' by 'Lost' Creator Damon Lindelof

Two years from now, The Americans is going to be the show that everybody is talking about. It's about a husband and wife, Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, who are undercover KGB agents pretending to be the perfect American family. They've been pretending so long that the line where the cover ends and their lives begin is blurred. Their across-the-street neighbor, played by Noah Emmerich, is an FBI counterintelligence agent, and about halfway through the season you realize he's more fucked up than the Russians, in terms of the secrets that he's keeping both from his family and his country.
