Woody Allen Signs On to Create TV Series for Amazon


Hollywood director Woody Allen will be branching into TV by creating a series for online retailer Amazon’s streaming service Prime Instant Video.

The Amazon Studios boss Roy Price has ordered a full season of the Untitled Woody Allen Project, a half-hour series written and directed by the Annie Hall moviemaker.

Price says, “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… 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.”

Allen claims he does not know what to make the show about, adding, “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.”

The series will be available on the streaming service in 2016 for customers in the U.K., U.S. and Germany.

The news comes days after Amazon Studios bosses celebrated their first ever win at the Golden Globes with hit comedy Transparent.
