LESLIE KNOPE GOES TO WASHINGTON -- AND IS SURPRISED TO MEET VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN (APPEARING AS HIMSELF) IN NBC'S "PARKS AND RECREATION" AIRING ON NOVEMBER 15

Scenes Filmed Inside Eisenhower Executive Office Building Next to White House

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. November 8, 2012 -- Vice President Joe Biden makes a cameo appearance as himself in a scene filmed in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House in Washington, D.C., on an episode of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" that will be broadcast on Thursday, November 15 (9:30-10 p.m. ET).

In scenes from the upcoming "Leslie vs. April" episode that were filmed last July, Biden appears with "Parks and Recreation" stars Amy Poehler (as Leslie Knope) and Adam Scott (as Ben Wyatt).

After successfully running a campaign for Congressman Murray in Washington, D.C., Ben decided it was time to move back to Pawnee, where he proposed to Leslie. In the scene with Vice President Biden, Ben and Leslie find themselves back in the nation's capital to gather Ben's personal belongings -- but Ben arranges a surprise meeting for Leslie.

The scene with Vice President Biden was shot in the Vice President's Ceremonial Office, also known as the Office of the Secretary of the Navy. The historic chamber was recently restored to its original style. The office's large formal desk was first used by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902 and has been used by many other Presidents and Vice Presidents since. The inside of the top drawer has been signed by many of the office-holders since the 1940s, including Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower and Walter Mondale.

"Vice-President Biden is both Leslie's political hero and her number-one celebrity crush, so meeting him is obviously a huge moment for her," said Mike Schur, executive producer of "Parks and Recreation." "We looked at a number of actors to OK the role of 'Vice-President Joe Biden,' and ultimately, Joe Biden himself gave the best audition."

"Meeting Vice President Biden was a thrill for me and for Leslie," said Poehler. "He was a good sport and a great improviser. The Vice President maintained his composure while I harassed him and invaded his personal space. The nation of 'Parks and Rec' will be forever grateful."

During the same visit to Washington, the show - which typically films in Los Angeles -- also filmed a scene with Senators Olympia Snowe, Barbara Boxer and John McCain for the series' season premiere episode which aired September 20.

The Emmy Award-nominated "Parks and Recreation" is currently in its fifth season.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur (NBC's "The Office," "Saturday Night Live"), "Parks and Recreation" is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Emmy nominee Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Baby Mama") 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.

"Parks and Recreation" is a production of Deedle-Dee Productions, Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment and Universal Television. Along with Daniels and Schur, Howard Klein ("The Office"), David Miner ("30 Rock"), Daniel J. Goor ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,"Late Night with Conan O'Brien") and Morgan Sackett ("Parks and Recreation") also serve as executive producers for the series.
