(Photo from NBC)Parks and Recreation is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun.

Since its premiere in 2009, the series has been included on dozens of television critics' Top 10 lists and was named "TV's Smartest Comedy" by Entertainment Weekly. Parks and Recreation is the recipient of a Peabody Award for excellence in television programming, an AFI honor as one of the Top 10 Television Shows of the Year, Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, and three consecutive Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for Amy Poehler's individual performance.
