The brief report on Deadline Hollywood said Allen has planned six half-hour episodes of the yet-untitled show, for which he wrote the scripts, and which he will direct.
All that was revealed about the subject matter is that it is set in 1960. May was once a half of the comedy team of Nichols and May with Mike Nichols, which performed on Broadway. She also worked with Allen on the film "Small Time Crooks." Allen's most recent Broadway project was the musical Bullets Over Broadway in 2014.
No timetable for the new TV show's premiere was reported.
