Matthew Weiner says working on ‘The Romanoffs’ was a “logistical nightmare”
The 53-year-old producer created, wrote, produced, and directed the upcoming anthology television series - which is set to premiere on Amazon Video on October 12 - and although the show follows a different set of characters each episode, he says it was “super stimulating” to work on fitting all the individual stories together in one narrative

When asked exclusively by BANG Showbiz if it was difficult to connect the episodes, Matthew said: “No it’s super stimulating it’s always changing it’s harder when you’re on the writing side on the writing room changing stories that’s hard changing characters and sets that’s hard but when you’re directing knowing you’re working in a different project - it’s a logistical nightmare but creatively very exciting.”

And Matthew - who is best known for creating hit period drama series ‘Mad Men’ - says it was difficult to pick a favourite episode as each one changes genres, but says there’s something for everyone within the series.
He said: “They’re all very different it’s very hard to pick a favourite they’re so different from each other it depends on what kind of genre you’re into you know the finale is a thriller that is very intense and probably the most openly entertaining I like all of them they’re so different the first one is a fairy tale the next one is a film noir and the next is a horror the one after that is a really intense 70s tribute social comedy the one after that i Mexico City is a poem to Mexico City so for me I don’t know what to tell you.”
‘The Romanoffs’ follows separate stories of people who believe they are descendants of the Russian royal family, and premieres on October 12 on Amazon Video.
