Keri Russell ("The Americans") has signed on to star in Netflix's new drama series "The Diplomat" created by Debora Cahn, who is best known for executive producing "Homeland" and "The West Wing".

The series, which will feature eight 50-minute episodes, will follow career diplomat Kate Wyler (Russell), who lands in a high-profile job she's unsuited for while an international crisis is unfolding. The new job also comes with tectonic implications for her marriage and her political future.

Filming will take place in the UK. Cahn serves as executive producer and showrunner. Russell will also executive produce alongside Cahn and Janice Williams ("Pieces of Her", "The Magicians").

Russell is also set to star in Elizabeth Banks' upcoming directorial project "Cocaine Bear", based on the true story of an American black bear that digested a duffel bag of cocaine. She will also reunite with her "The Americans" co-star Matthew Rhys to executive produce the FX sci-fi drama "Wyrd" in which Rhys is set to star.
