Meet the creative collaborators behind the new movie "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" - multi award-winning writer-actress-producer Tina Fey, best-selling author Kim Barker and Emmy Award-winning screenwriter Robert Carlock. "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" is based on Barker's memoir, "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan," which chronicles her experiences on duty as a reporter in Kabul after 9/11. Fey stars along with Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Alfred Molina, and the film opens in theaters March 4. In her review of the book New York Times critic Michiko Kakutani called it "hilarious and harrowing, witty and illuminating, all at the same time."
