After working with her on a recent multi-episode arc on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” Paul Rudd is planning to again re-team with Amy Poehler for a new comedy, titled They Came Together. Variety has the news, saying that both actors will be working alongside their Wet Hot American Summer director, David Wain.
The script, written by Wain and Michael Showalter, is said to be be a parody of the romantic comedy genre. Rudd stars as Joel, a corporate businessman whose company is threatening to shut down the small store run by Poehler’s Molly. A relationship follows, mocking the conventions of the standard romcom.
Rudd appeared earlier this year in Wain’s Wanderlust and can soon be seen in Judd Apatow’s This is 40. Poheler, meanwhile, provided a voice in this year’s The Secret World of Arrietty and will soon appear in Stu Zicherman’s A.C.O.D..
