The sequence’ conceit is a troublesome one to clarify throughout the confines of a teaser trailer. It’s comprehensible, then, that the 2 teasers launched to this point have centered not on the story (or tales) the sequence is aiming to inform, however on the pedigree of expertise assembled to inform them. At first is Weiner, who’s launching his first sequence since Mad Men ended its critically acclaimed run in 2015. Past Weiner, nonetheless, is a gigantic forged made up not solely of Mad Males alums, like John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, Jay R. Ferguson, and Cara Buono, but in addition the likes of Diane Lane, Aaron Eckhart, Griffin Dunne, Kathryn Hahn, Noah Wyle, Kerry Bishé, Corey Stoll, Amanda Pete, Paul Reiser, Isabelle Huppert, and extra.
Once more, there’s not a complete lot to go on with regard to what sorts of tales Weiner is planning to inform, however this being the primary footage from the sequence, not less than there’s a greater concept of what the tone shall be. As was the case with Mad Males, The Romanoffs appears like it is going to combine moments of drama with loads of humor. Actually, from the way in which the teaser is lower, it appears as if the brand new sequence is leaning extra towards comedy than drama. Maybe that’s only a advertising and marketing angle, and maybe it’s the results of how the present’s premise lends itself to some outlandish and humorous eventualities.
Living proof: Aaron Eckhart’s character explains he’s “half Russian, half German, half French,” to which a lady replies, “You’re three halves?” The lighter tone carries by way of the complete teaser because the character’s perception they’re associated to the Romanovs turns into an more and more eccentric declare that affords the sequence a tone as interesting as its forged.
Weiner serves as showrunner, director, and producer on all eight episodes, with Mad Males writers Semi Chellas and Andre and Maria Jacquemetton as a part of the sequence’ writers’ room. From what this teaser reveals, it appears as if The Romanoffs shall be dramatically totally different from Mad Males in sure methods, however comparable sufficient that it’s going to simply entice followers of Emmy-winning drama.
The Romanoffs premieres Friday, October 12 on Amazon Prime Video.
