Have you heard of the Romanoff family? The last Czar of Russia, his wife, and children, all perished during the Russian Revolution. But that hasn’t stopped people from claiming they were descendants of the fabled family throughout the years. Some have said that the youngest daughter, Anastasia, escaped the firing squads and lived out the rest of her life in hiding.
THE ROMANOFFS, the new series from MAD MEN creator Matthew Weiner, tells eight separate stories of people who claim to be descendents of the Romanoff family. A truly international show, THE ROMANOFFS was shot on location on three continents and set in seven different countries. Each episode will focus on a new cast in a new location. For example, the first episode, “The Violet Hour’ stars Marthe Keller, Aaron Eckhart, Ines Melab and Louise Bourgoin and the second story, “The Royal We,” starring Corey Stoll, Kerry Bishe, Janet Montgomery and Noah Wyle.
“The Romanoffs is an ambitious event series that will be the first-ever anthology released weekly on Prime Video,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, “Filmed around the globe and featuring an incredible, star studded cast, each episode will be a surprise gift to the audience. We are grateful to Matthew Weiner for bringing this groundbreaking series to life for our Prime audience.”
Above you can watch the first full-length trailer for the series, which will debut with a two-hour episode on Amazon Prime on October 12. Each subsequent episode will be released weekly on Fridays.
