The Romanoffs is Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner’s official TV follow-up to his multiple Emmy award-winning cultural atom bomb.
The Romanoffs is sort of about the powerful, dynastic Russian House of Romanov, who ruled Russia in some capacity or another from 1613 through the abdication of Tsar Nicholas in 1917. Instead of being a historical drama about the family, however, The Romanoffs is actually an anthology series set in the present day about many strange individuals whose only connection is the shared belief that they’re descended from the Romanov dynasty.
The anthology series is currently airing in an unprecedented weekly format on Amazon Prime.
