Wine Country (2019, D: Poehler) S: Poehler, Dratch, Gasteyer, Rudolph, Fey -- Netflix


<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Amy Poehler is hopping into the director’s seat with a little vino in hand.

The comedian-turned-producer will make her feature directorial debut with Wine Country, a Netflix comedy she will also star in and produce.

Poehler has assembled an all-star lineup of fellow comedians for her project, with Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Maya Rudolph and Emily Spivey joining her on the call sheet. Longtime partner in crime Tina Fey will also be on hand.

The script was written by Spivey, who worked with Poehler on her longtime NBC show Parks and Recreation as well as Saturday Night Live, and Liz Cackowski, who also worked on Saturday Night Live.

Country tells of longtime friends who go to Napa for a weekend getaway to celebrate a 50th birthday.

Poehler is producing via her Paper Kite Productions. Also producing are Paper Pictures’ Carla Hacken (Brad’s Status) and Dunshire Productions’ Morgan Sackett, a veteran TV producer who counts Parks and Recreation, Veep and Seinfeld among his credits.

Principal photography will begin toward the end of March in Los Angeles and Napa, Calif.

Poehler, who has directed episodes of Parks and Recreation and Broad City, is repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment and Sloane Offer. She will next be seen hosting, along with Nick Offerman, the NBC competition series Making It.

In honor of Rebecca's (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, Abby (Amy Poehler) plans a scenic Napa getaway with their best, longtime friends. Workaholic Catherine (Ana Gasteyer), post-op Val (Paula Pell), homebody Jenny (Emily Spivey), and weary mom Naomi (Maya Rudolph) are equally sold on the chance to relax and reconnect. Yet as the alcohol flows, real world uncertainties intrude on the punchlines and gossip, and the women begin questioning their friendships and futures. A hilarious and heartfelt comedy directed by Amy Poehler, Wine Country co-stars Tina Fey, Jason Schwartzman and Cherry Jones.

May 10, 2019.

I wish Tina Fey had more scenes since "And Tina Fey" probably means she has a small role in this film.

It's down to 67%.

Expected it to be funnier. The birthday weekend goes pretty much as expected. And Tina has only 2 scenes.

Maybe it was just an excuse for old SNL friends to hang out and they could care less about the actual movie.

I didnít care for this movie but Iím not part of the intended target audience. I did laugh out during the hill scene and the tribute to a certain TV show.

Wow. Didn't expect an all female remake of Grown Ups to happen this fast.

Wonder why Kristen Wiig was not in this?

Didn't care for it at all either.
