We’ve got a feeling that The Romanoffs will be one of those new series that’s going to get everyone talking, especially if this first teaser and the promise a multi-story globe-trotting story-line is anything to go by. Created, written, directed and executive produced by nine-time Emmy award winner Matthew Weiner (Mad Men), the series will feature eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family and is set in seven countries around the globe.

Shot on location in three continents, whilst collaborating with local productions and creative talent across Europe, the Americas, and the Far East, The Romanoffs takes on the wonderful task of having each story taking place in a new location with a new cast. The first episode, ‘The Violet Hour’ stars Marthe Keller, Aaron Eckhart, Ines Melab and Louise Bourgoin and the second story, ‘The Royal We‘ stars Corey Stoll, Kerry Bishe, Janet Montgomery and Noah Wyle.
