Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner To Star in Amy Poehler’s DIFFICULT PEOPLE
By Jake Kroeger on May 6, 2014
Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street) and Julie Klausner (host of How Was Your Week and a writer on Billy’s show) are great at riffing on pop culture. In a new project, they plan to do just that. Difficult People, a pilot presentation ordered by USA Network, will feature the pair as “frustrated comedians and pop culture-loving best friends living in New York City who hate everyone — except each other.” That’s not a stretch for either of them.
Amy Poehler is serving as an executive producer on the show; With the successes of Parks and Recreation, Broad City, and Welcome to Sweden under her belt, Poehler has been on a winning streak the past couple of years.
