The Felicity alums have really taken over pilot season.
The series, executive-produced by Yost and created by Falling Skies' Joe Weisberg, follows two KGB spies, Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings (Russell), who pose as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. in the '80s. Their arranged marriage begins to evolve into something more real, compromising their mission during the Cold War. Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) is directing the pilot.
Russell is the fourth major Felicity alum to land a role in a pilot this season. Scott Speedman will star in ABC's Last Resort, Scott Foley recently joined Fox's The Goodwin Games and Greg Grunberg has signed onto CBS' untitled Greg Berlanti/Greg Malins comedy.
