As reported by Deadline Amy Poehler has set her next directorial project for Netflix. It will be Moxie, a Tamara Chestna-scripted adaptation of the Jennifer Mathieu novel which Poehler’s Paper Kite acquired last year. Poehler will produce through her Paper Kite banner along with Veep’s Morgan Sackett and Paper Kite development director Kim Lessing.

Moxie tells the story of 16-year-old Vivian Carter, who becomes frustrated by the antiquated and sexist social rules of her Texas high school. Fueled by inspiration from her mother's Riot Grrrl past, Viv starts an anonymous, feminist zine at her school that takes aim at how girls are treated, particularly by members of the football team. However, when old friendships and new relationships come into conflict with Viv's newfound mission, she'll have to decide where her loyalties lie and what she's willing to fight for. The book and the movie are inspired by the Riot Grrrl underground punk rock feminist movement and subculture of the '90s, and applied to a contemporary setting.
