Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has set his next TV show!

Weiner will team up with Amazon for an eight-episode untitled project, which received a straight-to-series order, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Details are under wraps on what the new show will be about, but it will reportedly be set in contemporary times and is being described as an anthology that will take place in multiple locations around the world.

Weiner will serve as a writer and executive producer on the new show, and is expected to direct four episodes.

This marks his first television project following the seven-season run of his critically acclaimed AMC period drama, Mad Men.

Since the show ended in spring 2015, Weiner has laid low, directing a recent episode of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.

Back in March of that year, Mad Men star Jon Hamm remembered filming the final shot of the series.

"The last shot and set up -- we got it and said that's a wrap and I looked up and there were probably 300 people behind the thing and it was like, 'Oh yeah!' I forgot how big it was," Hamm told ET at the time.
