‘Parks and Recreation’ Opens Soon for Viewers
Tonight at 8:30pm ET, NBC will debut its long-anticipated Amy Poehler comedy Parks and Recreation. As everybody knows at this stage, the workplace mockumentary stars the former Saturday Night Live player as Leslie Knope, an employee of Pawnee, Indiana’s small Parks and Recreation Department and the aspiring first female president of the United States.
Office alumna Rashida Jones as nurse Ann Perkins, whom Leslie is determined to help transform an unused construction pit into a community park.
Scrubs actor Aziz Ansari as Leslie’s colleague Tom Haverford, who likes to put his job to good use … for himself.
Mayne Street’s Aubrey Plaza as downbeat Parks and Recreation college intern April Ludgate.
Paul Schneider (Third Watch) as long-time city planner Mark Brendanawicz, Leslie’s work friend.
American Body Shop’s Nick Offerman as Leslie’s boss Ron Swanson, who has issues with the government although he works for it.
Everwood star Chris Pratt as Ann’s musician boyfriend Andy.
Meet the cast of the rookie series in the earlier introductory post and continue below for a behind-the-scenes look at the sitcom and a nearly five-minute sneak peek at its pilot.
