[USA], August 30 (ANI): It seems like Matthew Weiner is all set to get back with his 'Mad Men' gang.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Emmy winner is set to reunite with 13 producers, writers, casting directors and costume designers from the acclaimed AMC drama for his forthcoming Amazon anthology 'The Romanoffs'.

Among them are executive producer and writer Semi Chellas, co-exec producer Blake McCormick, and consulting producers and writers Andre Jacquemetton and Maria Jacquemetton.

Kriss Turner Towner ('The Bernie Mac Show') and Kathy Ciric ('Z: The Beginning of Everything') have also come onboard as co-exec producers.

Other Mad Men alums working on The Romanoffs include director of photography Chris Manley, production designers Henry Dunn and Christopher Brown, and hair and make-up heads Theraesa Rivers and Lana Horochowski.

The casting team includes Emmy winners Carrie Audino and Laura Schiff, as well as Kendra Clark. Famed Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant is attached and will work alongside Wendy Chuck.

"It's an honor to be working with these exceptional storytellers and collaborators, many of whom I know from Mad Men, and all of whom are wonderful artists with incredible vision. We are all looking forward to bringing this unique project to life," Weiner said.

In addition to creating the hour-long drama, Weiner is set to direct all eight episodes of the series, which hails from Amazon and Weinstein Television.

The series is a contemporary series set around the globe, centering on separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family.

'The Romanoffs' will also star two Mad Men alums, Emmy nominees Christina Hendricks and John Slattery, as well as Isabelle Huppert, Marthe Keller, Aaron Eckhart, Jack Huston and Amanda Peet. (ANI)
