Amazon Studios has shared the trailer for The Romanoffs, the star-studded anthology series helmed by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner.

The Romanoffs was shot in various exotic locations around the world that include Europe, the Americas, and the Far East; all the while using local production and creative talent.

The first two episodes of The Romanoffs will hit Amazon Prime Video on October 12, with the remaining instalments dropping weekly thereafter. Each story takes place in a new location with a new cast.

With an insane ensemble (seriously, everyone is in this thing) and a story that spans seven countries and eight (!) stories, The Romanoffs looks incredibly ambitious and a bit more idiosyncratic than Weiner's acclaimed AMC series. There are blink-and-you'll-miss-it introductions to characters played by the likes of Isabelle Huppert, Diane Lane, Aaron Eckhart, Amanda Peet, Paul Reiser, Kathryn Hahn, Corey Stoll, and many others, not to mention Mad Men alums Christina Hendricks and John Slattery. New episodes will be released every Friday on Amazon Prime.

Prior to Mad Men, Weiner wrote and produced the iconic TV series The Sopranos for HBO.

The Romanoffs almost never got off the ground in the first place, as it was originally co-produced by The Weinstein Co. and after the studio's ex-head Harvey Weinstein was alleged to have committed serious sexual assault and harassment Amazon severed ties with the production company.

The Romanoffs will be executive produced by Semi Chellas, who also serves as a writer on the series, and Kriss Turner Towner, Blake McCormick, and Kathy Ciric.
