Woody Allen

The story goes that Kevin Spacey bought a Netflix subscription for the "Manhattan" and "Annie Hall" director so he could watch Spacey's Netflix show "House of Cards". It's a bit of a coup then that Amazon has secured Allen's first ever TV series. “I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I’m not sure where to begin," said the writer, actor, director and jazz musician.
