Miley Cyrus has confirmed her role in Woody Allen's forthcoming TV series. Following rumours regarding the director's new venture, the pop star has said that she will star in the new 1960s-set show, which will air on Amazon Prime, according to The Guardian.
In a post on Instagram, the 23-year-old entertainer announced that she would be working alongside Allen and the comic performer and writer Elaine May for half-hour episodes. Cyrus, who recently starred in Bill Murray's Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas, said she was "stoked" to be hired for the job.
The as-yet-untitled series will start shooting in March.
"Woody Allen is a visionary creator who has made some of the greatest films of all-time, and it's an honour to be working with him on his first television series," Amazon Studios head Roy Price said in a earlier press statement.
"I don't know how I got into this," Allen said. "I have no ideas and I'm not sure where to begin. My guess is that Roy Price will regret this."
In recent years, Cyrus' career has been built around her music and philanthropy, but she first rose to fame at the age of 11 as an actor in the Disney Channel TV show Hannah Montana, a series about a schoolgirl with a secret double life as a teen pop star.
