Amazon Releases Full Trailer For ‘The Romanoffs’ Coming In Sept From Creators Of ‘Mad Men’
Amazon Prime Video has released the key art and official series trailer for the original contemporary anthology series, ‘The Romanoffs‘, created, written, directed and executive produced by ‘Mad Men’s’ nine-time Emmy award winner, Matthew Weiner.
The Romanoffs featuring eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family. Set in seven countries around the globe, the series was shot on location in three continents collaborating with local productions and creative talent across Europe, the Americas, and the Far East. Each story takes place in a new location with a new cast.
The entire cast for the show is so ridiculously stuffed full of A-list names, it’s stupidly impressive. The first episode, ‘The Violet Hour’ stars Marthe Keller, Aaron Eckhart, Ines Melab and Louise Bourgoin and is set in Paris, where an ancestral home holds the key to a family’s future. The second episode, titled ‘The Royal We’, stars Corey Stoll, Kerry Bishe, Janet Montgomery and Noah Wyle, and follows a couple who find their own temptations when their marriage in a rut.
Other cast includes: Academy Award-nominee Isabelle Huppert (‘Elle’), Academy Award-nominee Diane Lane (‘Unfaithful’), Emmy Award-nominated Christina Hendricks (‘Mad Men’), Emmy Award-nominated John Slattery (‘Mad Men’), Amanda Peet (‘Togetherness’), Jack Huston (‘Boardwalk Empire’), Grammy Award-winner Andrew Rannells (‘Girls’), Mike Doyle (‘Odd Mom Out’), JJ Feild (‘TURN: Washington’s Spies’), Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated Paul Reiser (‘Red Oaks’), Kathryn Hahn (‘Transparent’), Jay R. Ferguson (‘Mad Men’), Ben Miles (‘Collateral’), Mary Kay Place (‘Big Love’), Griffin Dunne (‘Imposters’), Cara Buono (‘Mad Men’), Ron Livingston (‘The Conjuring’), Jon Tenney (‘Hand of God’), Clea DuVall (‘Veep’), Radha Mitchell (‘Silent Hill’), Hugh Skinner (‘Mamma Mia!
