Amazon Prime Video has been lagging behind Netflix in the race to pull in subscribers with original content. I watched the first episode of Amazon’s flagship Philip K Dick adaptation ‘The Man In The High Castle’ the other night. The acting was a bit shoddy and, despite the strong premise, it wasn’t particularly gripping. If someone could let me know if it’s worth persevering with, that would be really great. OK, thanks.

Oh, actually, I did start writing this for another reason, didn’t I? Yeah, Amazon’s next big move is to hire Woody Allen to direct a new series for it to exclusively stream. And this is relevant here because Miley Cyrus has been cast in it. See, you thought I wasn’t going to bring this around to music, and I did. Because Miley Cyrus is a pop singer.

In an Instagram post confirming the news, she said: “Fuck yeah! Stoked to be in Woody Allen’s first series! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of ‘chillin the fuck out’ but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of WA [pictured in the post] and I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May and da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm”.

If you didn’t quite get that, the series is set in the 1960s and will also star Elaine May and Woody Allen himself.

Here is an artist’s impression of what the filming will look like:

My next few months look a lot like dis
