The epic Citadel franchise, a co-production with Midnight Radio, is described as action-packed spy series with a compelling emotional center.

It was announced in December that Priyanka and her singer-husband Nick Jonas were producing an unscripted sangeet (an Indian pre-wedding event) series for Amazon.
