Amy Poehler Is Making A Netflix Film All About Drinking Wine With Your Friends

Amy Poehler is currently directing her first-ever feature film, a female-led comedy, seemingly all about drinking wine with ya mates in the comfort of an exotic vineyard.

The Emmy-winning actress, who stars as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation, is set to write, produce and star in the movie alongside "all the women" from early-2000s Saturday Night Live.

Wine Country will amass an all-star lineup of fellow comedians - including Ana Gasteyer, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Poehler's partner-in-crime Tina Fey, according to the Hollywood Reporter (THR).

And Emily Spivey, who wrote for NBC on Parks and Recreation, has created the script with comic, and former SNL writer, Liz Cackowski.

The story centres around a group of old friends who travel take a trip to the Californian wine territory of Napa for a 'weekend getaway' to celebrate a 50th birthday.

Netflix unveiled the news on Twitter, with a video showing its all-female cast (presumably after a glass or two of wine) singing "Whenever I Call You Friend".

No release date has been set, although THR claims that "principal photography will begin toward the end of the month."

Poehler has a range of producing credits and also directed three episodes of Parks And Recreation – as well as an episode of Broad City.
