Deadline reports the veteran filmmaker has cast Miley Cyrus in the untitled project. Allen himself and "Small Time Crooks" actress Elaine May will also star. This marks Allen's first time creating a television show and Cyrus's first return to "television" since her "Hannah Montana" days.
Cyrus confirmed the news on Instagram:
Fuck yeah ! Stoked to be in Woody Allens first series!!!!! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of "chillin the fuck out" but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of W.A. & I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be apart of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May & da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
The six-episode half-hour comedy series is set in the 1960s but that is all that is known about the show. Last year, Allen told Deadline that he "regretted every second since I said OK" to the Amazon deal.
