Amy Poehler’s ‘Wine Country’ Trailer Pours a Big Glass of Friendship (Video)

Her feature directorial debut co-stars Maya Rudolph

Netflix has released the trailer for Amy Poehler-directed comedy “Wine Country,” her feature directorial debut, which stars several of her “Saturday Night Live” co-stars.

Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Tina Fey are a group of longtime friends who go to Napa, California, for a weekend getaway to celebrate a friend’s (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, and drunken antics ensue.

Per Netflix, “In honor of Rebecca (Dratch)’s 50th birthday, Abby (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 (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.”

Other cast members include Jason Schwartzman, Cherry Jones and Maya Erskine.

Liz Cackowski wrote the script alongside Spivey — both of who are “Saturday Night Live” alums. Spivey also worked with Poehler on “Parks and Recreation.”

Poehler will produce under her Paper Kite Productions banner. Carla Hacken of Paper Pictures and Morgan Sackett of Dunshire Productions are also producing.

Poehler has directed episodes of “Parks and Recreation” and “Broad City.” She also directed the TV movie “Dumb Prince.” Her recent acting credits include “The House” and “Inside Out.” Poehler is represented by Kovert Creative, WME and 3 Arts Entertainment.

“Wine Country” debuts May 10 on Netflix.
