Amazon Studios announced today (via ComingSoon) that they’ve signed acclaimed filmmaker Woody Allen to create his first TV series. This is one brilliant and I must say unexpected news, Woody Allen will write and direct all of the episodes of the still-unnamed series, which will be a half-hour show.
“Woody Allen is a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all-time, and it’s an honor to be working with him on his first television series,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “From Annie Hall to Blue Jasmine, Woody has been at the creative forefront of American cinema and we couldn’t be more excited to premiere his first TV series exclusively on Prime Instant Video next year.”
And here’s what Allen himself had to say:
“I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin. My guess is that Roy Price will regret this.”
Casting and more information will be released in the future. So stick around.
