Amazon Releases Trailer for Woody Allen TV Series ‘Crisis in Six Scenes’

14 September 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon released the first trailer for Woody Allen’s television foray “Crisis in Six Scenes,” just about two weeks before the series is released on the streaming service Sept. 30.

The trailer indicates that the show will not shy away from being self-aware: “I’ve been working on an idea for a television series now,” Allen tells his barber while getting a trim.

“Oh I see, the usual dysfunctional family with the wise-crackin’ wife and kids and much-harassed husband kind of thing?” the barber asks. Allen simply stammers, shrugs and concedes.

Crisis in Six Scenes” is set during the 1960’s. It focuses on Allen and Elaine May who play heads of a suburban family that is interrupted by a hippie character played by Miley Cyrus.

In the trailer, Cyrus tells Allen, “I don’t dislike you… just everything that you stand for.”

The series, written and directed by Allen is six episodes long, with »

Michael Rapaport, Lewis Black & more join cast of Woody Allen’s untitled Amazon Series

18 March 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Woody Allen’s new Amazon series has just added some more talent. The untitled series has now cast Michael Rapaport, Lewis Black, Becky Ann Baker and a handful of others.

According to Deadline, little details are known about Allen’s new project, other than its being set in the ‘60s, its six half-hour episode makeup and — with the addition of Margaret Ladd, Joy Behar, David Harbour, Christine Ebersole, Rebecca Schull and the above-mentioned trio — its having a lengthy cast. Previously announced cast members include Miley Cyrus, Elaine May, John Magaro, Rachel Brosnahan and Allen himself.

While all seems okay now, Allen was previously having a difficult time with this project, going so far as to say “I have regretted every second since I said Ok. It’s been so hard for me.” The 80-year-old writer-director, who claims to not know what a streaming service is, recently confessed his inexperience with »

The weird, white cast of Woody Allen's new Amazon series just got weirder and whiter

16 March 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The cast of Woody Allen's upcoming six-episode Amazon series just got bigger. According to Entertainment Weekly, Rebecca Schull, Margaret Ladd, David Harbour, Christine EbersoleMichael Rapaport, and, somewhat surprisingly, Joy Behar and Lewis Black will appear in Allen's mysterious show, the title and plot of which have yet to be announced. They'll join previously announced Elaine May, Rachel Brosnahan, John Magaro, and, very surprisingly, Miley Cyrus. In a world where Olivia Wilde, at 28, was deemed "too old" to play Leonardo DiCaprio's wife, it's nice to see some older actresses (Schull is 87, May is 83, and Ladd and Behar are 73) get work, and some of these casting choices are, on their face, intriguingly unconventional -- Behar, for instance, is best known these days for her hosting work (though she's also done a good bit of acting work, including in Allen's Manhattan Murder Mystery), while Miley Cyrus is Miley Cyrus (Hannah »

‘The Friends of Eddie Coyle’ Blu-ray Review (MoC)

24 January 2016 1:37 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos, Mitchell Ryan, Peter MacLean, Marvin Lichterman, Carolyn Pickman, James Tolkan, Margaret Ladd, Matthew Cowles | Written by Paul Monash | Directed by Peter Yates

One of the fun things about loving a particular medium is the aspect of things being recommended, and this is something which has really grown in prominence for me with the growth of social media and podcasts. Having so much immediate access to the thoughts and opinions of others you specifically choose to listen to, whether they align with your tastes or challenge them, enables the discovery of a great deal of content in which much pleasure can be derived. One such example of this is The Friends of Eddie Coyle, a film which I hadn’t heard of before seeing and hearing talk of it’s forthcoming release over the past few months. Seeing »
