The controversial pop star will star alongside Allen and Elaine May in the as-yet-untitled, six-episode series, reports Deadline. While details about Allen’s first television series are slim, here’s what we know: it will take place in the 1960s and, as per usual, Allen wrote and will direct the entire series. It reportedly begins shooting in March… that is, if Allen can get his sh-t together. Last May, he said he “hadn’t had a pleasurable moment” since he undertook the responsibility of writing for television.
Miley appeared on “Two and a Half Men” in 2012 and on Bill Murray’s recent Netflix holiday special “A Very Murray Christmas,” but this will be her first starring television role since Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana” wrapped in 2011.
Given the show’s 1960s setting and the 23-year-old’s own history, it would be easy to imagine Miley as some sort of manic-pixie-hippie. After all, she already has the wardrobe for it.
