Details about Woody Allen’s first-ever TV series are finally here!
The 80-year-old filmmaker co-stars with Miley Cyrus in the anticipated six-episode Amazon comedy, which is titled Crisis in Six Scenes. The news was revealed at the streaming service’s Television Critics Association press day on Sunday.
Crisis in Six Scenes, which also stars Elaine May, is set to debut on Friday, Sept. 30, as Amazon’s final half-hour series to launching as part of their official “Month of Comedy” campaign. Rachel Brosnahan and John Magaro will also appear in multiple episodes.
Up until now, details had been scarce for Allen’s new project -- all we knew was that it was possibly set in the 1960s and that Cyrus sports her famous Hannah Montana-esque long locks.
The official synopsis for Crisis in Six Scenes confirms that it will be set in the ‘60s, “during turbulent times in the United States when a middle-class suburban family is visited by a guest who turns their household completely upside down.”
Two scenes were shown from the series, one featuring Allen at a barbershop asking for a James Dean-style haircut and another with Cyrus and Allen in the kitchen arguing about appliances before the conversation turned to world hunger.
In March, Cyrus -- in a dirty blonde wig and hippie garb -- was spotted on set in Sleepy Hollow, New York, filming a scene with Magaro for the new series, as Allen directed them.
In the scene, Cyrus was seen picking daises near a sundial in the backyard of a house as Magaro approached her and suggested they go on a walk through the woods, an eyewitness said.
Back in January, it was announced that Cyrus would star alongside Allen. This marks her first significant acting gig where she isn’t playing a version of herself since appearing on Two and a Half Men in 2012.
