Hulu has given a straight-to-series order to Difficult People, a new comedy from Amy Poehler and starring Billy on the Street's Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner.

The series stars Eichner and Klausner (whom Poehler describes as "the funniest around") as best friends living in New York City whose irreverent behavior frequently lands them in awkward situations.
