2. The Americans
- The Americans’ creator is a former CIA agent
You may love to see Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys slay as two KGB spies posing as Americans in the 1980s, but we bet you didn’t know the special connection The Americans has with the CIA. One of the show’s creators, Joe Weisberg, is a former CIA agent.
As a result, Weisberg is beholden to the agency. Every single script from The Americans must be approved by the CIA first so that nothing too important is given away. The CIA also has the right to censor the show which honestly is beyond the pale.
