Today in the network appeared the first teaser of the series “Romanovs” (The Romanoffs). The history of the last royal family does not give rest to the directors of the whole world, and many still wonder what happened to it actually. There are even theories about the supposedly surviving princess Anastasia, the eponymous cartoon film about which was released in 1997. So the creator of “Madmen” Matthew Weiner, thinking about the fate of the great Russian dynasty, took off the potential hit of this autumn.
In the center of the plot – a lot of characters from different countries, which are united by the legend that they are relatives of the Romanovs. Earlier, the director said that each of the eight series will talk about one of the families that adhere to the idea of this relationship. Nevertheless, Weiner set himself the task to show not the fate of the royal family, but to talk about how the roots and origin affect people. ”
The cast will impress any, even the most sophisticated, spectator. First of all in the “Romanovs” will appear the main star of French cinema Isabelle Huppert, as well as Christina Hendrix and John Slattery, who already worked with Weiner on the series “Mad Men”. Also on the show were Amanda Pete, Aaron Eckhart and Russian actress Eugenia Brik, the wife of the director Valery Todorovsky, who was previously caught in the similarity of his “Thaw” with “Madmen”.
