The pressure may be on for Amy Poehler to deliver big on her highly buzzed-about upcoming NBC sitcom, but she’s keeping pretty calm about it all.
“You just try to do your best and work with talented people,” Poehler told me at last night’s Sundance party at Village at the Yard’s T-Mobile Diner for Spring Breakdown, her new comedy with her former Saturday Night Live co-star Rachel Dratch and Parker Posey. “Doing stuff that is a little scary, I think is good. You have to keep moving.”
The series, which is set to premiere in April, stars Poehler as Leslie Knope, who heads up a small town parks department in Indiana.
