FEY AND POEHLER REVIVING THE COMEDY TEAM?

April 9, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Comedy teams used to be a staple in Hollywood but probably became a dying breed in the 1970s when the Smothers Brothers faded from TV. But Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could resurrect them. Having already received many plaudits for their hosting stints on the Golden Globe awards for the past two years, the two former Saturday Night Live players have been tapped to play sisters in a new movie for Universal titled The Nest. The two, who had previously co-starred in Baby Mama with Sigourney Weaver and Greg Kinnear, will also have producer credits on the movie. The script is by Poehler and Fey’s onetime Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell.
