by at .

Woody Allen is about to get involved with another very young lady.

Professionally, at least, this time.

The legendary director, writer and actor has signed Miley Cyrus to co-star in the new series he's set to bring to Amazon some time in 2016.

Cyrus will anchor the untitled program alongside Elaine May and Allen himself, as the show is scheduled to air six half-hour episode series and be set in the 1960s.

That's all the information Allen has released thus far about the wildly anticipated project.

The role will mark Miley's first major television role since Hannah Montana and the show will mark Allen's first-ever foray into television.

"I don't know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I'm not sure where to begin," Allen said when the series was announced a year ago. "My guess is that Roy Price will regret this."

Price, the Vice President of Amazon Studios, believes otherwise, however.

"Woody Allen is a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all-time, and it's an honor to be working with him on his first television series," he said in a statement.

"From Annie Hall to Blue Jasmine, Woody has been at the creative forefront of American cinema and we couldn't be more excited to premiere his first TV series exclusively on Prime Instant Video next year."
