Academy Award-winning director Woody Allen finally takes the leap into the television universe via Amazon Prime. He’ll be writing and directing a half-hour comedy series for the video streaming service. This is great news for Amazon who is coming off of scoring 2 major awards at the Golden Globes this past weekend. Amazon Studios Vice President Roy Price hailed Allen as a “visionary.” By landing the famed Director responsible for “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan” and “Blue Jasmine,” Amazon gets some well needed name recognition in the ever expanding world of alternative suppliers of Grade A content through broadcast. Allen has been quoted as saying, “I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin, My guess is that Roy Price will regret this.” At the moment it’s slated to debut sometime next year.
