WSJ Live Continues with FX's The Americans

Daymond John of FUBU and ABC's Shark Tank at the first WSJ Live at Bryant Park on February 12
The Wall Street Journal's interview series, WSJ Live at Bryant Park, continues next week at Celsius. The second event in our hit winter series will feature the creators of The Americans on FX, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, along with the show's star Noah Emmerich.

Joe Weisberg is the Creator, Executive Producer and Writer of the FX original drama The Americans. He worked in the CIA's Directorate of Operations in the early 1990's. After leaving the Agency, he wrote the novels 10th Grade and An Ordinary Spy. He was a staff writer on the first two seasons of TNT's Falling Skies. Born in Chicago, Joel currently lives in New York with his wife and daughter.

Joel Fields is the executive producer and writer of The Americans. Previously, he served as a writer/executive producer on ABC's Golden Globe winning series Ugly Betty and on the FX series Dirt, starring Courtney Cox. Other writing credits include Commander In Chief, which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Dramatic Series of 2005/2006. In addition to his TV work, Fields is also a playwright and author.

Noah Emmerich can currently be seen as FBI Agent 'Stan Beeman' on the original FX hit series The Americans. He will next appear in Guillaume Canet's Blood Ties, with Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis and Zoe Saldana, to be released March 21. He recently wrapped production on Gavin O'Connor's Jane Got a Gun, which also stars Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton, and is due out this Summer. His breakout performance came in Ted Demme's romantic drama Beautiful Girls, opposite Uma Thurman, Natalie Portman, Matt Dillon and Timothy Hutton. His next major role was in Peter Weir's Academy Award nominated film The Truman Show, alongside Jim Carrey, Ed Harris and Laura Linney. Other past films include Little Children, Super 8, Pride & Glory, Tumbleweeds, Fair Game, Sympathy for Delicious, Miracle, Frequency, Beyond Borders, Windtalkers, Life, Cop Land, and Warrior.

The first event with Daymond John had a packed house, and this one is sure to be the same. The event is free and open to the public with a light breakfast included, but registration is required. In addition, we still have an additional event in the works, so stay tuned for upcoming guest and registration info.
