Woody Allen Prime Video series gets name, release date. Woody Allen’s television series will be known as Crisis in Six Scenes. The series is set to air on Prime Video on September 30. These details were announced at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.
According to Amazon, the official synopsis of the series is as follows: “Crisis in Six Scenes’ is a comedy that takes place in the 1960s 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.”
Of course, Woody Allen will write and direct the series, but in a move that harkens back to his Annie Hall days, the storied creator will also star in the show. He is joined by Miley Cyrus and Elaine May; other actors who will reportedly appear on the show are Rachel Brosnahan, John Magaro, Michael Rapaport, Margaret Ladd, David Harbour, Joy Behar, Christine Ebersole, Becky Ann Baker, Lewis Black, and Rebecca Schull. Crisis in Six Scenes is executive produced by Erika Aronson.
Crisis in Six Scenes is one of several comedies coming to Prime Video in the next few months. The series will consist of six half-hour episodes, and will not continue for a second season. Other new Prime Video comedies coming this fall include One Mississippi and Fleabag; returning series include Transparent, Red Oaks, and Mozart in the Jungle.
