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, alongside the director himself. And believe it or not, there are some details. The series will run across six half-hour episodes, and be set in the 1960s. Other than that, no exact plot details, but it’s a reunion for May and Allen who previously worked together on the director’s “Small Time Crooks.” 

Production will begin in March, with Allen at the helm of all the episodes (he wrote the entire thing too). You’ll probably have to wait until 2017 to see the results, but as per usual, Allen already has his next movie in the can, the untitled movie starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Blake Lively, and Parker Posey.
