Underneath the Wigs: Uncovering The Americans' Hair-Raising Disguises

On the back of The Americans' hair and makeup trailer door is a photo collage of the cast and crew each in the same wig. It's not Clark or John Denver or any other of Philip's (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth's (Keri Russell) follicular get-ups on the FX series — but Felicity's famous curls.

To get the scoop, TVGuide.com sat down with executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, who also tease trouble in the rezidentura with the arrival of one of the Soviet Union's upper elite, Nina's (Annet Mahendru) precarious new position with Stan (Noah Emmerich) and the possibility that Elizabeth and Phillip's secret lives may not stay secret for much longer: read more
