See Woody Allen Go Counterculture in ‘Crisis in Six Scenes’ Trailer

Miley Cyrus plays counterculture-loving guest in first trailer for Amazon Video show

Woody Allen has shared the trailer for his first venture into television, Crisis in Six Scenes.

The late Sixties-based comedy stars Allen as a television writer and Elaine May as his psychiatrist wife, a couple whose existence gets turned upside down by the arrival of a counterculture-minded guest played by Miley Cyrus. “I don’t dislike you. just everything that you stand for,” Cyrus’ character tells Allen.

In the span of the two-minute trailer, Allen and May’s characters go from being protest-adverse – “I’m allergic to tear gas,” Allen quips – to hanging out with Black Panthers and plotting bra burnings and draft board demonstrations. “God’s gonna punish us for this,” a disguised Allen says before a criminal act. May responds, “God’s not gonna punish you, you’re an atheist.” “But if I’m wrong, we’re in big trouble,” Allen says.

Crisis in Six Scenes, written and directed by Allen, premieres on Amazon Video on September 30th.
