(Newser) – A year after it was first announced, Woody Allen's Amazon TV series finally has a cast. The six-episode series will star Allen himself alongside Miley Cyrus and Elaine May, who last acted in Allen's 2000 film Small Time Crooks, report Deadline and Reuters. Cyrus confirmed her new role on Instagram on Monday, noting she was "stoked to be in Woody Allen's first series!" Much about the unnamed show is still under wraps, though it will be set in the 1960s. Shooting is set to begin in March.
