While Keri Russell will always be Felicity to us and while we’re good with that and we know we have to move onward and upward.
Now we hadn’t hear of The Diplomat, but as usual, Netflix has piqued our attention with the release of the first look image. Well that and our sudden interest in all things espionage (blame all the spy shows coming out.
From show runner Debora Cahn (THE WEST WING, HOMELAND), THE DIPLOMAT is a high-stakes, contemporary political drama about the transcendence and torture of long-term relationships, between countries and people.
The show is about, “Kate Wyler (Keri Russell) is the new US Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was supposed to go to Afghanistan. She’s great in a crisis zone. In a historic home… less so. War is brewing on one continent and boiling over on another. Kate will have to diffuse international crises, forge strategic alliances in London, and adjust to her new place in the spotlight — all while trying to survive her marriage to fellow career diplomat and political star Hal Wyler (Rufus Sewell).
Also starring David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear, and Ato Essandoh, with executive producers Debora Cahn, Janice Williams, and Keri Russell.
The political drama is set to premiere on Netflix starting April 20th.
