Joining SNL actresses Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler onscreen are two SNL writers that have helped make everyone so amusing over the years, Paula Pell and Emily Spivey.

In case you're wondering what hanging out in Napa with Amy Poehler is like, we can bet it looks a bit like this.

You'll want a generous pour to sip through "Wine Country".


The streaming company released promo photos Thursday featuring Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Emily Spivey and Tina Fey.

This is Poehler's directorial debut, while Spivey and another "SNL" writing alum, Liz Cackwoski, wrote the script.

Having directed a handful of TV episodes for shows including Parks And Recreation, Amy Poehler is getting into film shot-calling with Wine Country for Netflix. As the wine keeps flowing (and flowing), real-world uncertainties and questions begin to infiltrate the feel-good moments as the women reassess their friendships.


Jason Schwartzman, Cherry Jones, and Tina Fey also star in the comedy.

Here's the Merlot-down: In honor of Rebecca's (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, Abby (Poehler) plans a scenic Napa getaway with their longtime best friends. She also executive produced Hulu's Difficult People and starred in the Wet Hot American Summer series on Netflix.

Wine Country will arrive on Netflix on 10 May, with limited cinematic screenings in the States kicking off on 8 May.
