Amazon Studios has announced that they are teaming up with Marvel directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s AGBO Studios on a “large-scope, international event series.”
The studio describes the collaboration as “a ground-breaking global television franchise” that “the Russo Brothers will have the creative freedom to oversee an ambitious concept meant to … redefine the boundaries of storytelling.”
It’s all very mysterious as no details have yet been provided beyond the fact that this series will be the mothership, functioning as a fire-starter to ignite the creation of multiple original local-language and local production series. All of those local series are meant to enhance the entertainment experience, and will be available for viewers to delve into an imagined layered world.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios said during a Television Critics Association panel, “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 video shown at the event, the brothers called this project, “a massive, global TV adventure” going on to explain that they would be “sourcing talent from all around the world.”
