Netflix has announced that Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headland and Amy Poehler are set to bring a new eight episode comedy series to the streaming service, which will follow 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.
“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. “Deeply moved to work with such heavy hitters and to share our show with the world.”
“Natasha’s humor, humanity and depth have connected with audiences around the world on Orange is the New Black,” added Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “With this new series, she, Leslye and Amy are creating an ambitious and uniquely formatted comedy that will have viewers guessing as much as they will be laughing.”
The as-yet-untitled series has been co-created by Lyonne, Poehler and Headland, who all serve as executive producers, with Headland serving as writer for the first episode and Lyonne and Headland writers for the subsequent episodes.
