What's better than an Amy Poehler comedy?
Amy Poehler is making her feature directorial debut! Tina Fey is also likely to be involved, as well as Paula Pell, who wrote the duo's comedy Sisters. And if that news wasn't exciting enough on its own, the cast list is pretty much flawless: Poehler herself will star, alongside a murder's row of amusing women (and fellow "Saturday Night Live" alums), including Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell (a longtime "SNL" writer who also penned the screenplay to Poehler's 2015 comedy "Sisters"), and Emily Spivey (a former "SNL" writer who created the short-lived NBC sitcom "Up All Night"). "Get excited. Get real excited".More news: Cynthia Nixon hits campaign trail

The script was written by Spivey, who worked with Poehler on her NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation", as well as on "Saturday Night Live", and Liz Cackowski, who also worked on SNL. Her illustrious resume also includes executive producer nods for shows like Difficult People and The UCB Show, in addition to writing credits ranging from Inside Out to the Golden Globes.
The "Parks and Recreation" star will star in and direct the Netflix comedy "Wine Country", the streaming service announced Tuesday.More news: Trae Young says he will enter NBA Draft
