Matthew Weiner is going digital. Deadline reports the Mad Men creator is developing a new series for Amazon.
The untitled anthology will reportedly be set in the present day and take place in multiple locations across the world. Little else has been revealed about the series.
Amazon has already ordered eight episodes of the new series, which will be written and executive produced by Weiner. The show is co-financed by Amazon and The Weinstein Company.
In a time when there are so many options for entertainment, it’s been tremendous to see how Roy Price and Amazon have taken center stage by distinguishing themselves through bold choices. I am truly excited to have this opportunity to work with risk takers like them and Harvey and The Weinstein Company who have a proven, longstanding commitment to creative voices and innovation.”
