The Romanoffs (Amazon)
When does it premiere? October 12
Who's in it? Honestly, everyone. But really: Aaron Eckhart, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Isabelle Huppert, John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, Andrew Rannells, Amanda Peet, Paul Reiser, and many more.
What it's about: Each episode of this anthology series follows different people who believe they are connected to the famed Russian Romanov dynasty. You know, of Anastasia and such.
Why you should care: With this level of acting talent assembled, it's clearly worth paying attention to. On top of that, this is Matthew Weiner's return to television post-Mad Men (and also post-sexual harassment allegation). Expect a slow burn with plenty of literary references.
