Woody Allen’s first small-screen series will debut on Amazon this fall.
The streaming service announced the Sept. 30 debut date as well as the title for Allen’s project: “Crisis in Six Scenes.”
The comedy, set during the upheaval of the 1960s, focuses on a suburban family dealing with the chaos brought by a visitor. The cast includes Allen, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May.
It’s one of several new comedies to be released this fall, Amazon said Sunday, beginning with comedian Tig Notaro’s “One Mississippi,” inspired by events in her life and debuting Sept. 9.
It will be followed on Sept. 16 by playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s “Fleabag,” about modern life in London and starring and written by her.
Also announced Sunday were the return dates for “Transparent,” the transgender-themed comedy which will begin its third season on Sept. 23; “Red Oaks,” the 1980s-set country club sitcom back for its sophomore season Nov. 11; and “Mozart in the Jungle,” the series set in the world of classical music, starting its third season Dec. 9.
On the drama side, Amazon newcomers “Goliath,” with Billy Bob Thornton starring as a struggling lawyer seeking redemption, will debut Oct. 14, followed by “Good Girls Revolt” on Oct. 28.
“Good Girls” dramatizes the real-life late 1960s workplace equality fight of female researchers, an effort led by attorney Eleanor Holmes Norton.
