Amy Poehler will make her feature film directorial debut with Netflix, the streaming service has announced.

Netflix revealed on Tuesday an all-female cast in the comedy Wine Country, which the Parks And Recreation actress will also star in.

Poehler, 46, will be joined by a host of comedians, including former Saturday Night Live (SNL) co-star Tina Fey.

Emily Spivey, who wrote for Parks And Recreation, created the script with SNL’s Liz Cackowski, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Poehler has a range of producing credits and directed three episodes of Parks And Recreation as well as an episode of Broad City.
