Fresh off its double wins for “Transparent” on the Golden Globes, Amazon Studios announced that filmmaker Woody Allen has been signed to write and direct his first series.
The untitled project will be a half-hour series and received a full-season order from Amazon. Allen will write and direct the show’s episodes.
Few details were available, of course, which is generally true of Allen’s film projects. The show will premiere on Amazon Prime instant video exclusively next year.
“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 Amazon Studios Vice President Roy Price. “We couldn’t be more excited to premiere his first TV series.”
