Woody Allen’s upcoming Amazon Studios series Crisis In Six Scenes takes a jaundiced look back at the 1960s or, perhaps, at the way people largely went about their lives ignoring the era’s vast social changes for as long as possible. That’s at least judging by the first look at the series, in which it’s firmly established that Woody Allen is incapable of looking like James Dean. See for yourself in the clip above, released earlier day that was one of two shown during the series’ TCA panel this morning. I like Max Casella’s acrid barber who, in addition to bluntly discouraging Allen’s elderly writer from attempting a Dean haircut, also has some rather unkind things to say about the his client’s latest novella. Then again, if you have to live with the fact that you wrote a bad novel, you might as well attempt a decent, if hilariously inappropriate haircut, right?
Along with Allen, Crisis In Six Scenes stars Miley Cyrus, Elaine May, Rachel Brosnahan, John Magaro, Michael Rapaport, Margaret Ladd, David Harbour, Joy Behar, Christine Ebersole, Becky Ann Baker, Lewis Black and Rebecca Schull. It premieres on Amazon September 30 and, as Allen confirmed earlier this year, will consist of only one season.
