Tina Fey Teams Up With Female Pals in Amy Poehler’s Directorial Debut

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been best of friends and colleagues for years; so it’s no surprise that Fey is obviously along for the ride in Poehler’s directorial debut, “Wine Country”.

After years of starring in TV and film comedies, Poehler is finally directing her first feature film. “Wine Country” focuses on a group of long-time female friends making a trip up to Napa Valley for a wine-filled 50th birthday party.

Poehler and Fey both love focusing on stories of female empowerment and friendship, so you can probably expect plenty of touching moments among the comic hijinks.

“Wine Country” will star plenty of familiar SNL faces, including Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph, and Ana Gasteyer.

Filming starts in March, and when the film is finished it will be released on Netflix.
