Russo Brothers reveal their secret of building a global series franchise with Citadel

The highly anticipated series Citadel starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden recently released its spectacular trailer. The show is a six-episode series which is backed by the Russo Brothers and showrunner David Weil.

Taking a deep dive into the making of the global franchise, Joe Russo said, “We thought that this was such a novel idea for a narrative and an amazing way to create a really diverse global community of storytellers. To tell a giant mosaic of a narrative together. After our work on other films and spending so much time travelling the globe, this was an idea I think was really exciting to Anthony and I and ignitable for us which seemed like an incredible challenge.”

Anthony Russo said, “Joe and I had never heard a premise like this before.”

“This is something that Joe and I’ve been working on for many years now. As storytellers, we really love the engagement of the global film community. It’s an incredible opportunity and we went to work trying to find the right story that could sort of fulfil the ambition we had and we were lucky to have amazing collaborators in order to find that,” he further added.
