Cheers! Amy Poehler to make directorial debut with Netflix's 'Wine Country'

A fun video of the castmembers hanging out was used to announce Wine Country on Netflix's official Instagram page on Tuesday (20Mar18). Don't worry, Poehler's frequent comedy partner Tina Fey will also be onboard for an undefined featured role.

Fans will recognize former Saturday Night Live regulars Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, and Ana Gasteyer, who will also star in the film. An Amy Poehler comedy with wine in hand, obviously.

It's written by Emily Spivey and another SNL member, Liz Cackowski, who worked together on The Last Man on Earth.

The clip ends with the words "Your new favourite movie", while the Twitter caption reads: "Get excited".

Poehler, who has directed episodes of Parks and Recreation and Broad City, is repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment and Sloane Offer.

The film is being produced through Poehler's Paper Kite Productions, for distribution through Netflix. Joining Poehler in the cast are several of her fellow SNL vets: Rachel Dratch (SNL), Ana Gasteyer (Suburgatory), Paula Pell (Love), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) and Emily Spivey with Tina Fey making an appearance. Principal photography for Wine Country is scheduled to begin later this month in Los Angeles and Napa, however, a release date for the movie has not yet been announced.
