Matthew Weiner is returning to TV, and he's bringing a few "Mad Men" stars with him for "The Romanoffs."
This time, Weiner is swapping AMC for Amazon, which will stream his ambitious new anthology series this October. (Side note: Is anyone NOT making an anthology these days? It's the new vampire movie.)
Here's the logline:
"From the creator of 'Mad Men,' 'The Romanoffs' is a contemporary anthology series set around the globe featuring eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family."
Apparently the series was shot on location in "three continents and seven countries collaborating with local productions and creative talent across Europe, the Americas, and the Far East."
Amazon shared a teaser that's literally just flashing the names of the star-studded cast on screen. There are a lot of names to show!
It was already revealed that John Slattery and Christina Hendricks would be returning from "Mad Men" for this series. But check out the new and previously announced names for the full cast (via Collider):
Jay R. Ferguson
Mary Kay Place
Juan Pablo Castañeda
Here's the teaser with the names:
And now that music, Prokofiev's "Dance of the Knights," is going to be in your head all day.
That's just a teaser, so we're curious to get a real taste of the show from the eventual trailer.
"The Romanoffs" premieres Friday, October 12 on Amazon Prime Video.
