amy-poehlerAmy Poehler, Natasha Lyonne, and Leslye Headland have teamed up for a new comedy in the works at Netflix. According to Deadline, the streaming network has given an eight-episode series order to an untitled comedy (formerly titled Russian Doll) from the trio. The show will follow Lyonne’s character Nadia “on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City.” Headland and Lyonne will serve as writers on the show as well as co-executive producers alongside Poehler. “So excited to get cracking with the intensely brilliant Leslye Headland, the GOAT with a heart of gold Amy Poehler, and Netflix, the safe haven I’ve been searching for since the 80s,” said Lyonne on the news. “Deeply moved to work with such heavy hitters and to share our show with the world.”
