Amazon Orders Full Season of Woody Allen Series

On the heels of its two Golden Globe wins with Transparent, Deadline reports Amazon Studios has ordered a full season of a new untitled series from acclaimed filmmaker Woody Allen. The project, which will premiere on Prime Instant Video, marks Allen's first foray into television.

"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," Roy Price, vice president of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. "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 isn't just attached to the project in name only; in true Woody fashion, he will reportedly write and direct the half-hour episode.

While no specific date has been given as to the series' premiere, Amazon says that customers in the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany should expect to see the series sometime in 2016.
