Six decades after writing for Sid Ceasar, Woody Allen returns to a very different kind of television via Amazon Prime

On the heels of winning two Golden Globes for its original TV series, Transparent, Amazon studios chief Roy Price hired acclaimed (and controversial) filmmaker Woody Allen to write and direct a season's worth of half-hour shows. In his typical style, Allen said in a statement, "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."
