  1. Interesting premise. I’m excited to see how they pull it off. Series is further backed up with a great cast. Also interesting to see a couple of Mad Men alumni back under the Weiner wing. Serendipitously I’m reading Simon Sebag Montefiore’s biog of the Romanovs. Hopefully I will be finished by the time this starts.
