In latest news today, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden have been cast in the lead roles of the Russo brothers’ upcoming drama series at Amazon. The announcement came at the Television Critics Association winter press tour and is all set to be titled Citadel. While the announcement has been made, details of the plot are still being kept under wraps. Amazon also announced that a local language production of the franchise will originate from Mexico, in addition to the previously announced versions in Italy and India.

Both Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden will star in the US “mothership” edition of the series. The show had originally been announced in July 2018. Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio will serve as writers and executive producers of Citadel. The Italian series will be co-produced with Amazon Studios and Cattleya, part of ITV Studios, and the Indian series will be developed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. and produced with Amazon Studios.

Further, it was announced back in December that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were producing an unscripted sangeet series with Amazon. She is a former Miss World and leading Bollywood star who made her American onscreen debut in the ABC drama series Quantico in 2015. She has since made her mark in Hollywood and has certainly become a force to be reckoned with. She is also currently developing an untitled Indian wedding comedy with Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor at Universal in which she will star and serve as co-producer.
Priyanka Chopra also recently saw the release of her Bollywood film, The Sky Is Pink, which marked an end to her brief hiatus from Bollywood. The film, which is based on a true story, fared rather well at the box office. We can’t wait to see what Priyanka Chopra Jonas has in store for her fans next!
