‘Transparent’ Season 3, Woody Allen series, 2 other comedies hit Amazon in September


Amazon is planning a big push for comedy series next month with four launches, including Woody Allen’s highly anticipated “Crisis in Six Scenes” and Tig Notaro starrer “One Mississippi.”

The streaming service revealed the title of the Allen series — which stars the legendary auteur, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May — on Sunday at the summer TV press tour.

Amazon’s plan is a bold step to barrel into the early fall premiere territory that has traditionally been reserved for the broadcast networks. Joe Lewis, Amazon’s head of half-hour programming, said the plan was to launch four new series in a row to make September “comedy month” on Amazon. “One Mississippi” will kick off the debuts on Sept. 9.

“Fleabag,” created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is set to premiere on Sept. 16. The third season of “Transparent” drops on Sept. 23, followed by “Crisis in Six Scenes” on Sept. 30.
