"Welcome to Sweden" Trailer #1 : While it would be easy to write this off as, "NBC loves Amy Poehler so much she let her brother have his own show," things look pretty promising for this summer premiere. Greg Poehler, who executive produces and created the show, also stars as a celebrity lawyer version of Greg Poehler. "Welcome to Sweden" is based on Poehler's own experiences leaving the U.S. and traveling to Sweden to be with the woman he loves. Executive produced by his sister Amy, who also just so happens to be the face of the best comedy on any of the big four networks, "Welcome to Sweden" features celebrity cameos playing exaggerated versions of themselves. Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, and Aubrey Plaza all play former clients of Greg's character who aren't too happy he's left them to move to Sweden. There's lots of upside for comedy sprinkled throughout, so here's hoping funny runs in the family.
