Amazon spent $80 million to lure filmmaker Woody Allen into creating his first TV series for their TV studio, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.
Sources told the outlet that Amazon Studios head Roy Price and lieutenant Joe Lewis “doled out” that staggering figure to convince Allen to create his six-part, 2016 show “Crisis in Six Scenes.”
Set in 1960s suburbia, the comedy series starred Miley Cyrus and Allen, and was critically panned. It received an 18% “Rotten” rating from Rotten Tomatoes.
