What's on TV on Friday: "The Romanoffs" and "The Kindergarten Teacher"

adminOctober 12, 2018




The new Matthew Weiner series debuts at Amazon. And Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in "The Kindergarten Teacher" on Netflix.

The Romans in Amazon. Matthew Weiner had a writer's block. After a seven-year series of "Mad Men," the show he had created, Weiner took a break and then tried to restart his creative brain. "It was really bad," he told The New York Times in a recent interview. "Nothing was happening." Then he wrote his first novel, "Heather, the whole", published in 2017, and discovered the pleasure of telling a story that did not have to continue episode by episode. Another result of that realization comes in the form of "The Romanoffs", a series of anthologies for Amazon with a cast of stars: Diane Lane, Kathryn Hahn, John Slattery, Aaron Eckhart and Isabelle Huppert are among the faces that appear in their eight episodes . In each, there are characters who think they are descended from the Russian royal family holder. That strange connective tissue unites these stories, which are developed around the world. The series begins with a couple of episodes, each one almost 90 minutes.
