Amy Poehler to make feature directorial debut with Netflix comedy Wine Country
Pour a glass of wine and prepare for Amy Poehler’s feature directorial debut.
The Emmy-winning actress will pull double duty, working both in front of and behind the camera for the Netflix comedy Wine Country, the streaming service announced Tuesday. Poehler will also produce the project written by former Saturday Night Live writer Emily Spivey.
Wine Country will follow a group of friends on a trip to Napa Valley for a weekend getaway. Along with Poehler and Spivey, the stacked cast will be rounded out by fellow SNL alums Rachel Dratch, Paula Pell, Ana Gasteyer, Maya Rudolph, and Tina Fey.
In the video below, the actors gathered to sing Kenny Loggins’ “Whenever I Call You Friend,” and more importantly, announce the film.
