Amazon has revealed that it has recruited Woody Allen to create his first TV series.

In a press release issued earlier today, Amazon says that Allen will write and direct a new series of half-hour episodes, provisionally titled Untitled Woody Allen Project, and will be available only to Prime Instant Video subscribers in the U.S., U.K, and Germany.

In a statement that perhaps doesn’t instill the greatest confidence, Allen says:

“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.”

Roy Price, if you didn’t know, is Vice President of Amazon Studios, the Amazon arm responsible for developing original content.

Woody Allen is better known for his work in Hollywood and Broadway, having written, directed, and starred in a myriad of movies and plays since the 1960s.
