Like a runaway train that exhibits no signs of stopping, Netflix is barreling along its path of entertaining the masses one original project at a time with the announcement that Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headland and Amy Poehler are set to bring a new comedy series to Netflix members around the world, with Lyonne set to star.

The yet-to-be-titled comedy series, from Universal Television, follows 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. As a part of the programs' launch, the eight-episode series is set to premiere on Netflix in more than 190 countries around the world.

Recently, while talking up the new comedic venture, Lyonne said, "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. Deeply moved to work with such heavy hitters and to share our show with the world." Then, following up on Lyonne's remarks was Leslye Headland who added, “These women are heroes of mine and to work with them at a company that promotes originality and creativity is a thrill.”

Not be left out of the excitement loop, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix, Cindy Holland, remarked about her anticipation for the series by saying, “Natasha’s humor, humanity and depth have connected with audiences around the world on ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. 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 "triple-lady-threat" series is co-created by Lyonne, Poehler and Headland, who will each serve as executive producers on the project. Headland will act as the scribe of the first episode while Lyonne and Headland are set to pen the remainder of the series. The series is produced by Universal Television, Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions, JAX Media and 3 Arts Entertainment, with Brooke Posch serving as executive producer for Paper Kite and Dave Becky as executive producer for 3 Arts Entertainment.
