Hulu Greenlights Amy Poehler Comedy Project

Hulu Tuesday announced a straight to series pickup for comedy series Difficult People.

The series, executively produced by Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation) and Dave Becky (Louie), stars Julie Klausner (Billy on the Street) and Billy Eichner (Billy On The Street) as best friends living in New York City whose irreverent behavior leads to very awkward situations, said the OTT service.

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions, marking the first series collaboration between Universal and Hulu.

“Amy Poehler, Billy Eichner, and Julie Klausner are a dream team of comedic possibilities,” said Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Hulu. “We look forward to bringing this hilarious view of the world to Hulu with our partners at Universal Cable Productions.”
