Not content to simply rule the box office with their smash ‘Avengers’ films, Joe and Anthony Russo also want to dominate television. They have two programs already on the way– Syfy’s ‘Deadly Class’ and TBS’ ‘Quantum and Woody’. Now they have a new project coming to Amazon. The title hasn’t been revealed, nor has the basic plot, but it is clear that this is more than just a TV show.
As it is described:
“The origin mothership series will function as a fire-starter to ignite the creation of multiple original local language and local production series. All of the local series are meant to enhance the entire entertainment experience and will be available for the viewer to deep dive into an imagined layered world.”
Hmmm… while it’s a little hard to understand, it sounds as though this is an interactive project, with the Russos creating the core concept but inviting others to craft additional works that will further embellish this world.
Though she doesn’t really explain the nature of the Russo Brothers’ Amazon project, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said:
“The Russo Brothers have impacted the pop culture barometer of creative excellence with their vision for both Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. They brought a level of scale and execution to those films that has raised the bar for audiences everywhere and we can’t wait for them to do the same for us on this project for our Amazon Prime Customer. We are thrilled to be working with Joe and Anthony Russo and their AGBO Studios as they build this incredible, multifaceted, international franchise.”
In a taped segment, Joe Russo explained, “We absolutely love world-building and to be able to wrap our hands around this groundbreaking international series is an incredible opportunity for us.”
