Deadline reports that the unlikely duo of Miley Cyrus and the legendary screenwriter and director Elaine May ("Tootsie", "The Heartbreak Kid") will star in Woody Allen's Amazon series.
Details about the 1960s-set series are being kept under wraps, but Allen will write and direct all six half-hour episodes.
This will be Cyrus' first major acting gig since "Hannah Montana" ended in 2011. In December, she appeared in A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix opposite Bill Murray and George Clooney (and she stole the show). "I have no ideas and I'm not sure where to begin", Allen said when the series was announced a year ago.
Allen, 80, recently finished production on his unnamed movie starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Blake Lively, and Parker Posey.
