The high-stakes drama is executively produced by the Russo Brothers, who are best known for their work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“This is a really unique television event,” explained Joe Russo during the Citadel press conference, “that's what excites Anthony and I the most about it.”
"The notion of telling a story that could be interwoven throughout the world… [it’s] an amazing way to create a really diverse global community of storytellers to tell a giant mosaic of a narrative together."
Whilst the series consists of only six episodes, it marks the start of a global franchise, with subsequent series set around the globe with interconnected stories already in the works.
Each Citadel series will be locally created, produced, and filmed in-region, and series are already underway in Italy and India, respectively, starring Matilda De Angelis, Varun Dhawan, and Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
