Billy Eichner to star in USA pilot from Amy Poehler; also, he loves 'Game of Thrones'


Emmy-nominated funny man Billy Eichner has been tapped to create and star alongside longtime friend and writer Julie Klausner in an upcoming pilot for the USA Network. 

The Amy Poehler-produced show, "Difficult People," will feature the "Billy on the Street" host and Klausner playing pop culture loving friends and frustrated comedians trying to make it in NYC who hate everyone except each other.

Eichner has a long-standing relationship with Poehler as she has guest starred on "Billy on the Street" and Eichner had a recurring role on season 6 of "Parks and Recreation." 

The comedian and self-professed pop-culture expert recently made an appearance on "Conan" where he revealed what he loves most about "Game of Thrones" and why he obsessively tweets about Anne Hathaway.
