The Poehler family must be very proud. Amy Poehler and her brother Greg have sold the US broadcasting rights of their new show Welcome to Sweden to NBC. The sitcom is a semi-autobiographical comedy that stars Greg as a New York accountant named Bruce who falls for a Swedish girl and follows her to Sweden. Amy will join Will Ferrell, Aubrey Plaza and Gene Simmons in making memorable cameos in the series. The siblings will both serve as executive producers. Prepare to potentially see a lot of the Parks and Recreation star in 2014, as she sold a 10-episode scripted comedy, Broad City, to Comedy Central last spring.

    They’ve already shot it for Swedish TV, so no green light needed. If NBC should decide to drop it for some reason, it will still get a full season in Sweden, at least.
