Mad Men creator reunites cast for new Amazon series

Matthew Weiner is bringing together Christina Hendricks and John Slattery for his drama The Romanoffs


They say stick with what you know, and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is doing just that when it comes to his new Amazon series The Romanoffs.


The showrunner is reuniting two of the cast of his acclaimed advertising drama, recruiting Christina Hendricks and John Slattery as guest stars for his latest project.

Hendricks and Slattery played Joan Harris and Roger Stirling in the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning drama and will join the likes of Isabelle Huppert, Jack Huston and Amanda Peet among the guest cast of Weiner’s anthology series.

The Romanoffs is set to premiere on Amazon Prime in 2018 and will tell separate stories from around the globe of people who believe they are descendents of the Russian royal family who were overthrown and killed by Bolshevik troops in 1918.

Weiner has created the series and will direct all the episodes as well as executive producing.


Since Mad Men concluded in 2015, Hendricks has gone on to star in film The Neon Demon and will next be seen in new Sky series Tin Star. Meanwhile, Slattery has had a guest arc in Veep and cropped up in Churchill and Captain America: Civil War.
