Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will star together in Universal's comedy flick "Baby Mama."
Extending their partnership from SNL's "Weekend Update" to the big screen, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to star in "Baby Mama", a new comedic feature from Universal Pictures.
Planned to be shot next summer when both Fey and Poehler have some time off from their TV stints, the project centers on a single career woman who decides to hire a surrogate to satisfy her desire of having a child while at the same time still able to keep her career. Michael McCullers has been tapped to both write and direct with Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn producing.
Fey, a 1992 graduate of University of Virginia, is currently co-producing, writing, and starring in NBC sitcom "30 Rock" while Poehler recently guest-starred in MTV2's sketch comedy TV series of "Wonder Showzen."
