Raise a glass to Amy Poehler as she makes her directorial debut in Wine Country. The script is written by Parks and Recreation cast mate Emily Spivey and Liz Cackowski who worked with Poehler on SNL. The cast will also include: Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Maya Rudolph and Emily Spivey. Of course, the movie, made for Netflix, wouldn’t be complete without longtime friend and collaborator Tina Fey’s input.
