Amy Poehler is sticking with Netflix for her next directing gig, which is teen drama Moxie.
The Parks and Recreation star has increasingly stepped behind the camera in recent years, directing episodes of both Parks and Rec and Broad City. This summer, she makes her directorial debut with Wine Country, which stars Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, Emily Spivey and Poehler herself. Before then, she also teamed up with Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland to co-create Russian Doll, which is currently proving a popular hit among Netflix viewers.
Now, Deadline reports she’s reteaming again with the streaming giant for a Riot Grrrl-inspired drama. Based on Jennifer Mathieu’s novel, which Poehler’s Paper Kite acquired last year, the film follows a 16 year-old girl who is inspired by her mother’s past as part of the underground punk movement to start a feminist revolution at her high school.
Written by Tamara Chestna, the film is produced by Poehler’s Paper Kite banner, which is also behind Russian Doll. Poehler will produce with Veep’s Morgan Sackett and Paper Kite development director Kim Lessing.
Chestna, meanwhile, is no stranger to streaming, having penned Wildside for YouTube Premium, and was also EP on Dennis Quaid series The Art Of More plus feature films Other People’s Love Letters and Everything’s Cool.
Production on Moxie will begin this autumn.
