Diane Lane Joins Matthew Weiner’s “The Romanoffs”

Diane Lane signs on for a role in Amazon’s newest royal family The Romanoffs. 

Earlier this month, Amazon Studios decided to move forward with the project without the involvement of The Weinstein Company, as the sole producer of the series.

The upcoming new series will consist of eight one hour-long standalone episodes. Each episode will center on the stories of those who believe they are descendants of the imperial family that ruled Russia from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917.

This TV appearance is quite rare for the Oscar nominated actress, as she primarily worked on film throughout her career. Lane joins previously announced cast members such as Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Isabelle Huppert, Corey Stoll, Andrew Rannells, Paul Reiser, and Amanda Peet among others.

Matthew Weiner serves as the series’ director, executive producer and writer. Semi Chellas will also be writing for The Romanoffs and will also serve as the show’s executive producer.

The Romanoffs will debut on Prime Video next year.
