The 47-year-old actress-and-comedian is set to helm the adaptation of Jennifer Mathieu's novel of the same name for the streaming service, which Poehler's Paper Kite Productions acquired last year.
'Moxie' will centre on a 16-year-old girl from a small American town who starts a feminist revolution at her high school after becoming inspired by her mother's past experience as part of the underground punk movement Riot Grrrl.
The 'Mean Girls' star will produce through her Paper Kite banner along with Veep's Morgan Sackett and Paper Kite development director Kim Lessing.
Amy worked with Kim on the sitcom 'Parks and Recreation' and on 'Wine Country' for the streaming service which marked the star's directional debut.
