Amy Poehler Developing New Comedy “Division One” at Peacock

Variety is reporting that Amy Poehler is producing a new comedy called “Division One” for NBC’s streaming service Peacock. You can read more about it below!

Peacock is adding a bunch more feathers to its slate.

Only a couple hours before NBCUniversal unveils the new streaming service, Peacock has announced it is developing series with Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling, among others.

The Poehler-produced project is titled “Division One” and is described as a coming-of-age comedy about an underdog women’s collegiate soccer team that gets a new female coach – a former professional soccer player who’s fallen from grace – and must decide whether or not they’re going to take the risk of trying to be great.

Maggie Carey, who is best known for directing episodes of shows such as “Barry,” “Silicon Valley”  and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” is writing, directing and executive producing the show, alongside Julia Brownwell who serves as a writing-executive producer. Poehler, who was recently announced as the co-host for next year’s Golden Globes, is exec producing via her Paper Kite banner, alongside Kim Lessing. Retired national women’s soccer player Abby Wambach is also among the executive producers with Glennon Doyle. Dave Becky and Tom Lassally will exec produce for 3 Arts Entertainment. “Division One” hails from Universal Television.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Returning as Golden Globes Hosts

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Returning as Golden Globes Hosts

We have some exciting news! Earlier this Saturday, Amy made a surprise appearance at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour and announced the big news: Tina and Amy will be back hosting the Golden Globes again in 2021! You can read more about it below.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are headed back to the Golden Globes stage.

The news came via Poehler’s surprise appearance at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour Saturday. An exact date in 2021 has not been decided, but the telecast will mark the comedy pair’s fourth time hosting the awards show. Poehler and Fey were universally praised for their on-stage rapport during their previous outings in 2013, ‘14 and ‘15.

News of their involvement will inevitably be seen as a coup for producer Dick Clark Productions, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and longtime partner NBC, particularly at a time when major award shows have struggled to line up hosts. ABC announced earlier this week that next month’s Oscars will go hostless for its second year in a row. 

The announcement comes just a week after NBC aired the annual award show with Ricky Gervais on the dais. The British comic, who’d hosted four times before, joked that this time would be his last, giving him the freedom to unload on the Hollywood system and its benefactors. At one point during his recent stint, he suggested the night’s winners come up, “accept your little award, thank you agent and God and fuck off.” Viewership for the night’s ceremony was down slightly, with the star-studded show hitting an eight-year low. 

Fey and Poehler both have long-standing relationships with NBC, beginning with their star-making turns on Saturday Night Live. More recently, Fey created and starred in 30 Rock and produced Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for Netflix. She, with Robert Carlock, will exec producer NBC’s upcoming comedy starring Ted Danson as L.A.’s mayor. Poehler, who starred in Parks and Recreation for NBC, is an exec producer and host of NBC’s Making It and a hands-on producer on Netflix’s Russian Doll and Fox’s upcoming animated comedy Duncanville. Poehler also announced that Making It has been picked up for a third season.

Amy Poehler is expanding her relationship with NBC.

The Making It host and executive producer has set up the thriller The Mother-in-Law at the network. Based on Sally Hepworth’s novel of the same name, the drama landed at NBC with a sizable put-pilot commitment.

The projectis described as an unexpected thriller that centers on a woman’s complicated relationship with her husband’s family that ends in death, as well as a gripping mystery that explores motherhood, class, race and how dangerous family secrets can be.

Jessica Goldberg (The Path, Parenthood) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Poehler and her Paper Kite head of production Kate Arend. Author Hepworth is also attached to exec produce alongside 3 Arts’ Dave Becky. The potential series hails from Poehler’s longtime home at Universal TV.

The Mother-in-Law is Poehler’s latest producing vehicle, joining Fox’s animated series Duncanville, Adult Swim’s Three Busy Debras, last season’s NBC comedy I Feel Bad, the Emmy-nominated Netflix series Russian Doll and the recently concluded Comedy Central hit Broad City and Hulu’s Difficult People. Next up, she is teaming with Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip) for an untitled Amazon comedy series. Poehler’s feature directorial debut, Wine Country, bowed earlier this year.
