Priyanka Chopra Jonas will be the leading lady in a new series for Amazon Studios.

The Quantico alum and Bodyguard star Richard Madden will star in Citadel, a new multi-layered global series from directors and brothers Anthony and Joe Russo’s AGBO, Amazon Studios announced on Tuesday.

Additionally, a local language production of the franchise will originate from Mexico — in addition to versions in Italy and India, which were previously announced — but Chopra, 37, and Madden, 33, will star in the U.S. “mothership” edition of the show.
