Amy Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions Has Now Sold 3 Pilots This Season
She’s already got Broad City and Difficult People on the resume of her Paper Kite Productions and two recent pilot commitments bump her up to three pilots total for Paper Kite this pilot season alone. Jordan Roter and Nisha Ganatra have put pilot commitments under the Paper Kite banner, respectively, for Aunt Jill at ABC and Pre-Madonna at NBC. Roter’s Aunt Jill will star Mo Collins, who many will remember as Parks and Recreation’s Joan Callamezzo.
This is on top of her still being on screen and having her online brand Smart Girls. If you already though Poehler was a force to be reckoned with, take note that she’s now just going ahead and reckoning with the biz.
Amy Poehler Brings Comedy Central’s Brooke Posch To Her Paper Kite Productions

Yesterday, you might have heard that Comedy Central has gotten Amazon’s Sarah Babineau to come on board to develop original series on the East Coast.
That move might have something do with the fact that Comedy Central is now losing one of their own execs in Brooke Posch to Amy Poehler’s production company, Paper Kite Productions.
Posch has worked closely with Poehler at Comedy Central, specifically on Broad City and will no doubt help bring up similarly great things via Paper Kite.
