That’s right, old mate Amy Poehler is heading in to her directorial debut, and she’s assembled a glorious, joyous cast of the funniest women around.
Naturally, long time partner-in-crime Tina Fey will be there. We’re not sure in exactly what capacity yet, but she’ll definitely be around.
Elsewhere, Poehler has assembled a cracking team of comedians including SNL alums Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteye, Maya Rudolph, plus two former writers Emily Spivey and Paula Pell.
The film, a Netflix Original, is called Wine Country, and is about longtime friends who go to Napa in California to celebrate a 50th birthday.
Please watch the following video with the sound all the way up, for some indication of what we expect this show to be like.
