Parks and Recreation-Season 1 - Emmy Nominee-Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Starring: Amy Poehler
Because Parks Don't Grow On Trees.
|From the people who bring you The Office comes Parks and Recreation, the hilarious saga of government employees and local citizens turning a neighborhood hole in the ground into a new public park. Comedy superstar Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Baby Mama) stars as Leslie Knope, an ambitious and hopeful small town government worker, whose dreams are way bigger than her political talents. Created by Primetime Emmy Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, SNL), and featuring a stellar ensemble cast, Parks and Recreation is a "genuinely funny" (Daniel Carlson, Hollywood Reporter) comedy about bureaucracy, hope and America at the dawn of the Obama age.|
"...I dug the performances, the attitude, and the atmosphere that's being created. Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly
Editor's NoteTHE OFFICE producers Greg Daniels and Michael Schur are the creative minds behind PARKS & RECREATION, a comedy about the earnest-but-absurd world of municipal politics. Framed as a mockumentary, the sitcom stars Amy Poehler (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) as Leslie Knope, a small-time civic leader with big dreams and difficult cohorts, including the hilariously self-involved bureaucrat, Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), the bored intern, April (Aubrey Plaza), the obstructing boss, Ron (Nick Offerman), and the dour city planner, Mark (Paul Schneider). In order to climb the ladder and complete her current project--helping a no-nonsense nurse (Rashida Jones) turn a construction pit into a park-- she'll have to stay almost naively plucky in the face of rampant indifference and disrespect. This collection includes every episode of the first season of PARKS & RECREATION.
