Rumor: ‘Wine Country’ Release Date

Rumor: ‘Wine Country’ Release Date

During an interview at the Golden Globes, Amy confirmed that ‘Wine Country’ is set to be released in May, but she never said a specific date. The website Popculture.com is reporting that the movie’s release date is May 10, but it has yet to be confirmed by Netflix. Read more about it below:

Three movies from three huge female stars are reportedly on their way to Netflix: Brie Larson’s Unicorn Store, Gina Rodriguez’s Someone Great and Amy Poehler’s Wine Country.

All three movies feature their famous female leads both in front of and behind the camera. Unicorn Store was directed by Larson—her first ever feature as a director. Poehler is also the director of Wine Country, though she has overseen four TV episodes before. Rodriguez, meanwhile, is a producer on Someone Great.

Meanwhile, Wine Country brings together some of Poehler’s most beloved collaborators under her direction. The cast includes Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch and Jason Schwartzman, among others. It follows a group of friends on a road trip to Napa, where they intend to celebrate a 50th birthday. The movie is one of Netflix’s most hotly anticipated originals of the year, but the May 10 release date still has yet to be confirmed.

Paula Pell Teases Amy Poehler’s Directorial Debut Wine Country

Paula Pell Teases Amy Poehler’s Directorial Debut Wine Country

During an interview with Vulture, Paula Pell was asked about Amy’s directorial debut Wine Country. She talked a little bit about the plot of the movie and all the actress that are involved in it. You can watch the video and read an article below!

Paula Pell can’t say much about Netflix’s forthcoming movie Wine Country, but she did say her part “may involve dildos.” The project, which she also teased will be released in “springish time,” marks Amy Poehler’s directorial debut. Pell sat down alongside Richard Kind, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Rhys Thomas, and Alex Buono at Vulture Spot at Sundance to talk about their new episode of IFC’s Documentary Now, but things got a little off-topic.

Wine Country was inspired by a true story — but not the kind of tear-jerking, stranger-than-fiction tale you might associate with that tagline. In reality, the idea for the film came to Poehler after a girls’ trip to Napa for Rachel Dratch’s 50th birthday with fellow mid-2000s SNL powerhouse alums Pell, Dratch, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, Tina Fey, and Emily Spivey.

Pell revealed that while the actresses don’t play themselves in the film, the story is still about the group. “Every fault and every wonderful thing” remains present in each of the characters, Pell said. Little else is known about the project, except that it also includes Jason Schwartzman and Cherry Jones, and was co-written by Spivey and former SNL writer Liz Cackowski.

From the group of friends that brought us thisthis, and this, it’s definitely about time they all got together and made a movie. “When the friendship stays real off camera, you get the results on camera,” Dratch previously told Vulture.

Welcome to I Heart Amy Poehler!

Hello and welcome to I Heart Amy Poehler, your newest source for the comedian and actress Amy Poehler! My goal is to create a complete fansite for Amy with pictures, news, information on her projects and much more. The website is still under construction and I have tons of stuff left to add so bear with me while I continue to build the site. Our ever-growing gallery is starting with over 14,000 photos. Since Amy has already began doing press for ‘Russian Doll’, I thought it would be nice to open the site and update it with the latest news.

Please enjoy the website as I slowly build it and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates!

Amy Poehler to Speak at Indeed Interactive

Amy Poehler to Speak at Indeed Interactive

It was announced that Amy is one of the keynote speakers at Indeed Interactive. She will be delivering the keynote speech: “The Art of Authenticity: How to Change the World by Being Yourself.” The conference is happening on May 15 in Austin, Texas.

Amy Poehler is one of the most versatile and sought-after talents in Hollywood today. Famous for her role as Leslie Knope on “Parks and Recreation,” she was one of the biggest stars on “Saturday Night Live” in the 2000s. Today, she helms many of her own projects through her production company, Paper Kite Productions, and serves as an executive producer, author, host and humanitarian.

But no matter what medium she works in, she is always true to herself. And she has a message for the rest of us — that authenticity isn’t just important to a career in entertainment; it has many lessons for the world of work also. That is why we are very excited to announce Poehler’s upcoming appearance at Indeed Interactive, our annual conference for talent attraction and HR professionals, where she will deliver the keynote speech: “The Art of Authenticity: How to Change the World by Being Yourself.”

Few public figures have careers that so clearly reflect authenticity and the drive to follow their hearts as Poehler. She developed her skills in improv comedy, an arena where she could say whatever came to mind and act without a script. As a comedic actress, she made a name for herself by fearlessly pushing the limits of humor and leaning into memorable characters.

In addition to her acting career, Poehler is the founder of “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party,” an online and in-person community offering resources to help young women cultivate their most authentic selves.
Poehler recalls the joy of being accepted for who she was as a young girl and founded the organization to empower other girls to feel the same way. “Smart Girls at the Party” emphasizes “intelligence and imagination over ‘fitting in’” and embodies Poehler’s vision that embracing authenticity can transform individuals, organizations and, eventually, the world.  

So how does this fit in with hiring?
Poehler has conquered new territory in production, publishing and tech by being unafraid to learn and change. When it comes to hiring, both employees and organizations must cultivate these qualities to find their right fit.

Like many industries, the recruiting world is constantly changing, and adaptability and authenticity are key for those on both sides of the hiring equation. It can be difficult to determine which candidate is the best fit for a role — but when job seekers are being their authentic selves and organizations are clearly expressing and embodying their cultural values and missions, the right matches will follow.

Come join us, and explore just why authenticity matters, at Indeed Interactive with Amy Poehler.
