Miley Cyrus is set to make a comeback to TV after playing Hannah Montana in the popular Disney Channel show of the same name. This time the pop-star will play a dramatic role as a loudmouth hippie, who is inspired by radical communist leaders. Also, it would be a significant role for the singer as she stars alongside Woody Allen in the comedy series, created by the filmmaker himself.
Crisis in Six Scenes is a six-episode comedy series, which is set to premiere on Amazon on 30 September. Other than marking the TV debut for the acclaimed director, the short series will also be the first significant acting role for Cyrus, who was last seen on Two And A Half Men in 2012 followed by some other small roles.
In the first trailer for the much-anticipated series the Wrecking Ball singer resembles her Hannah Montana avatar as she sports a blonde wig.
But her character is much different from her Disney role, with Cyrus's hippie portrayal as she hands out marijuana, inspires older women to burn their bras and incessantly quarrels with Allen's character.
According to reports, the plot of Crisis in Six Scenes follows the story of a conservative New York couple played by Allen and Elaine May, whose middle-class suburban household is turned upside down by a new guest, who is caught up in the 60s movement.
"I don't dislike you...it's just everything that you stand for," Cyrus exclaimed in the trailer between her bouts of arguments with Allen's character. In a funny moment, the actor-director is seen complaining about Cyrus's character stealing his navel oranges in the trailer.
Set in 1960s, the six-episode series has been written and directed by Allen and also stars Rachel Brosnahan and John Magaro. Speaking about working on his first TV project, the 80-year-old director had earlier said, "I don't know how I got into this. I have no ideas and I'm not sure where to begin. My guess is that Roy Price will regret this."
Meanwhile, Cyrus is also set to make her debut as the Voice coach in the NBC reality show on 19 September.
