Crisis In Six Scenes takes place in the 1960s during turbulent times in the United States when a middle class suburban family is visited by a guest who turns their household completely upside down.
Allen, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May are billed as the stars, with Rachel Brosnahan and John Magaro are billed as recurring guests.
It was announced as part of a month of comedy for Amazon.
No other details, including crucially if the series will be distributed outside of Amazon’s video markets. Hopefully more details will emerge in the coming weeks.
