What’s a “war-journalism comedy,” you ask? Fey stars as a TV reporter trying to

She’s in over her head, but so is everyone else: A lot of the explosive-heavy trailer focuses on the heavy contrast between the real dangers happening in Kabul and the surreal party atmosphere within “The Funhouse,” where the foreign journalists live. Adapted from Kim Barker’s memoir “The Taliban Shuffle,” the screenplay (by “30 Rock” EP and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” co-creator Robert Carlock) also focuses on what it’s like to be a (white) woman in Afghanistan.
Named after the military alphabet code for “WTF,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” opens March 4, 2016.
