Good news for Woody Allen fans
Woody Allen fans have something to look forward to seeing how a television series completely made by Allen has been commissioned by Amazon Prime. This will be Woody Allen’s first TV project ever and he is supposed to write and direct each installment of the series. The series is made up of 30 minutes episodes and though an entire season has been commissioned by Amazon Studios which should air next year there is no name for it except ‘Untitled Project’.
Roy Price, the VP of Amazon Studios made clear his excitement and that of the studio to be working with Woody Allen. In a statement, Price called Allen a visionary and one of the best American directors out there. He continued by saying that it will be an honor for Amazon Studios to be working with him on his first TV project.
Things are bleaker if you listen to what Woody Allen has to say as part of the same statement. Basically he said that he is lost, has no idea where to begin and doesn’t know how he got involved in this affair. He also stated that Price and the studio may regret this, in the long run. Looking at Woody Allen’s career it’s not sure if this is real or just some eccentricity and a way to attract more publicity to the project.
Allen is responsible for such masterpieces as ‘Annie Hall’ and the more recent ‘Blue Jasmine’ so everyone is confident that we will work something out and deliver another great film just like he always does.
