Poehler to star in, direct wine-filled comedy for Netflix

If you needed a reason to love Amy Poehler even more, her latest project may be it.

According to Refinery29, the actor and friend in our heads will be making her directorial debut with a Netflix film called Wine Country, which “film follows a group of pals who head to Napa to get their grape on and celebrate one of the women’s 50th birthdays.”

As if the plot isn’t enough, Refinery29 reports that the film’s cast features all of Poehler’s besties, including ” Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Tina Fey, and Emily Spivey, who also penned the script.”

With an all-star comedic cast, it’s hard to not be excited for the film — and Poehler & Co. seems to feel the same. Netflix announced the news Wine Country‘s forthcoming release by tweeting out a video of Poehler and her co-stars singing the Kenny Loggins song, “Whenever I Call You Friend” in slightly-tipsy unison.

While there has yet to be a release date announced, one thing is for sure: this film is going to be one to watch.
