There's been a Mad Men-sized hole in our hearts ever since Don Draper taught the world to sing via a Coca-Cola ad. But creator Matthew Weiner will finally unveil his followup to the landmark show (the less said about Are You Here the better) this fall: The Romanoffs, a new Amazon Prime series that is basically the "prestige TV version of Love, Actually." Check out the first trailer below.

The Romanoffs is a contemporary anthology series set around seven countries across the globe featuring eight separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family. Each story takes place in a new location with a new cast. But boy oh boy, what a cast: the first episode, "The Violet Hour," stars Marthe Keller, Aaron Eckhart, Ines Melab and Louise Bourgoin. The second story, "The Royal We," stars Corey Stoll, Kerry Bishe, Janet Montgomery and Noah Wyle.

Also starring in future episodes of the show (deep breath): Diane Lane, Isabelle Huppert, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Amanda Peet, Jack Huston, Kathryn Hahn, Paul Reiser, Andrew Rannells, Mike Doyle, JJ Feild, Jay R. Ferguson, Ben Miles, Mary Kay Place, Griffin Dunne, Cara Buono, Ron Livingston, Jon Tenney, Clea DuVall, Radha Mitchell, Hugh Skinner, Juan Pablo Castañeda, Emily Rudd, Adèle Anderson, Annet Mahendru, Hera Hilmar, Michael O’Neill, and David Sutcliffe. (For those counting, we have spotted at least four Mad Men actors—Hendricks, Ferguson, Buono and Slattery—in there.)

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last year, Weiner explained the inspiration behind the show: "The reason that I picked the Romanovs is that in an era where we have social media and so much theoretical connection to each other it really seems like we're further apart than ever. And I love this idea that these characters believe themselves to be, whether they are or not, descendants of this last autocratic family who are part of one of the great true crime stories of all time. I also love that it's the chance to talk about nature vs. nurture, what they have in common, and what is left of a grand heritage." (He also said he hadn't ruled out doing a second season of the series if viewers like it.)

The first two episodes of the new show will be released on October 12th, with the other six coming weekly thereafter—the fact Weiner got the streaming service not to ceremonially dump the entire thing all at once is remarkable in and of itself.

Late last year, a former Mad Men writer, Kater Gordon, accused Weiner "of making a sexually charged remark to her while she worked on the series." She had won a writing Emmy for the second season of the show in 2009 before being let go at the end of the third season. Weiner responded through his pr rep, saying, "He does not remember saying this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would say to any colleague."

Following the accusation, Mad Men’s Marti Noxon (who worked on the series as a producer and writer) said Weiner was an "emotional terrorist" who would "badger, seduce and even tantrum in an attempt to get his needs met."
