TV show description:
From Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, The Romanoffs TV show is a drama anthology. The series follows eight separate stories centering on characters who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family.
Tsar Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra, and their five children were executed in July of 1918. The legend of the House of Romanov still captures the imagination, in part, because of the theory that daughter Anastasia escaped and assumed a new identity.
Each standalone episode of The Romanoffs employs a different cast and new locations to tell the story of contemporary people. The only common thread is that think they are descendants of Russia’s former imperial family, which ruled from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power.
Episode #8 — The One That Holds Everything
In a story that circles the globe, a man tries to escape a family curse.
First aired: October 12, 2018.
