Friendship is a trip. Watch #WineCountry on Netflix May 10, 2019.
In honor of Rebecca’s (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, Abby (Amy 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 (Maya 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. A hilarious and heartfelt comedy directed by Amy Poehler, Wine Country co-stars Tina Fey, Jason Schwartzman and Cherry Jones.
Amy Poehler, Mark Rivers (composer), Mike Schur (co creator), and Emma Fletcher (writer) were interviewed by LAistto talk about Li’l Sebastian, 5,000 Candles In The Wind and more about the legacy of Parks and Rec. Read the full interview below!
Parks and Recreation debuted this week 10 years ago and immediately took a place in all of our hearts. OK, fine, people were preeeeetty mixed on it until season 2, but then it took a place in all of our hearts. Note: Spoiler warning for a 10-year-old TV show. One of the most iconic moments in the show’s history was the funeral of town icon/miniature horse Li’l Sebastian — it perfectly summarized the show’s extremely earnest heart.
We interviewed star Amy Poehler, composer Mark Rivers, show co-creator Mike Schur, and writer Emma Fletcher about the enduring legacy of Li’l Sebastian — and the show. (You can also read our previous Parks and Recreation oral history on Galentine’s Day right here.)
HOW CHRIS PRATT’S ANDY DWYER MADE SUCH TERRIBLE BUT COMPETENT SONGS
Mark Rivers started playing in Boston rock bands, but ended up working as a comedy writer. He used his songwriting for shows like Mr. Show and Human Giant — where he met Aziz Ansari.
Rivers: When they did Parks and Recreation, he recommended me for that gig. They needed somebody to write all the silly Mouse Rat songs, and I had done a bunch of weird comedy music. Schur: We said, they’re a bar band. They’re not incredible musicians. But, the joke here isn’t ‘this band is terrible’ — they should be competent songwriters. Rivers: They were like, they should be bad, but not musically bad. They should be bad taste bad. It should be like s——- corporate rock. Schur: I was sort of saying, it’s in the vein of late ’90s radio rock. Rivers: So without listing any bands too specifically, we mentioned a handful of types of bands to get me in the right genre.
Today marks 10 years since Parks and Recreation aired its first episode on NBC! To celebrate it, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman shared a message for the fans via the Parks and Rec official Twitter:
Also in celebration of Parks and Rec’s 10th Anniversary, Billy Kheel, one of the contestants from the Season 1 of ‘Making It’ sent a special crafty gift for Amy and Nick, which you can check out in the video below:

Amy Poehler attended Deadline’s Contenders Emmy Event earlier today in Los Angeles, California. She was there to talk about Broad City and Russian Doll, in which she helps to produce, create, write and direct! Our gallery has been updated with photos from the event, check them out below.
A series about reliving your death over and over again has the making for a great comedy but it also runs the risk of, as the premise suggests, repetitive. But the Netflix comedy Russian Doll steps up to the challenge with co-creators, executive producers and writers Leslye Headland, Amy Poehler and Natasha Lyonne (who also stars) leading the charge. At Deadline’s Contenders event, the trio talked to Dominic Patten about the deja vu-centric show and how it has created a whole new bingeing experience.
Russian Doll follows a young woman named Nadia (Lyonne) on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City. One night she falls down the stairs and dies and then she is transported to a certain point in the same evening when dies again…and then it happens again…and again. The whole series is an existential journey of Nadia figuring out what the hell is going on. Seeing that it is a repetitive show, it brings new meaning binge-watching.
When creating the show Headland and her fellow creators posed the question: How do we make the ultimate binge show?

“Mean Girls is an iconic cult hit that audiences around the world love,” said Jill Offman, executive vp of Paramount Network International. “From its popular Broadway show and video games, to thousands of memes and iconic quotes, we felt like the film should be brought to life for fans in a way only Paramount, and the power of Viacom, could create.”
Mean Girls: The Movie and More will take place June 12-June 16 at Seymour Leisure Centre in London’s Marylebone neighborhood, which will be transformed into Mean Girls’ North Shore High School.
