Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation

From the minds behind The Office comes Parks and Recreation, a "mocumentary" that takes viewers into the exciting world of local government. Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), a mid-level government employee of the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, is assigned to help local nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) to convert an abandoned construction site into a new community park. However, Leslie must fight through the bureaucrats, problem neighbors, and developers in order to make her dream a reality, all while with a camera crew recording her every gaff and mishap.

Leslie is helped, as well as undermined, by co-worker Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), who routinely uses his position in the department for his own personal gain. Her boss Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) becomes a serious problem to the success of her project, in part due to his philosophical opposition to the government. City planner Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider) works with Leslie and Ann to help them navigate through the defensive beaurocrats and developers, but has been jaded by 15 years of working for the city of Pawnee.

All in all, Leslie hopes to complete the project, despite the many obstacles in her way, in part to inspire her uninterested college intern April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza), and begin to take steps necessary to achieve her ultimate goal: become President of the United States.
