Amy Poehler’s Paper Kite Renews Deal at Universal Television

(via Variety)

Quietly, Amy Poehler has become as powerful behind the camera as she is in front of it.

Amy Poehler’s production company, Paper Kite, had signed an overall deal two years ago and just re-upped with NBC Universal’s Universal Television.

Earlier this week, there was a first look deal made with Universal Cable Productions and the Upright Citizens Brigade, which Amy is a founding member of.

All of this means that Poehler’s reach to develop shows and content could potentially extend across the entirety of NBC Universal’s television portfolio from broadcast to cable to digital. That’s a pretty rare position to be in as far as we’re aware of.

Now that we think about it, Amy may be more powerful behind the camera these days.
