About Citadel and its spin-off
In an interview with Variety, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke talked about Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden-starrer Citadel, and that it will have spin-off series set in India, Mexico and Italy.
She said, “Local language and regional series are very important to us. We’re investing hugely in Citadel from the Russo Brothers. It’s a big global [spy thriller]. I’ve seen the first three episodes. The whole idea behind that show is global storytelling with standalone local series that feed into the storylines and fill in details about specific characters. So there’s a show set in India featuring a big star and showrunners there who are working under the umbrella of Citadel that will fill in the details of Priyanka Chopra’s character.”
