About Parks and Recreation

"Parks and Recreation" returns for its sixth season on NBC this fall. 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 and Golden Globe nominee Amy Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Baby Mama"), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Ind., and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun.

In the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, Leslie's office mates include Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe, "Brothers and Sisters," "The West Wing"), a health nut who wants to live to be 150 years old, and Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari, "Human Giant," "Scrubs"), a fashion-obsessed wannabe player whose greatest dream is to own his own nightclub. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, "Children's Hospital"), hates the very government he works for, and sports one of the most impressive moustaches on primetime television. Rounding out the cast are: Adam Scott ("Friends with Kids," "Party Down") as Leslie's husband and former campaign manager, Ben Wyatt; Rashida Jones ( "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "The Office") as her best friend, Ann; Chris Pratt ("Zero Dark Thirty," "Moneyball") as shoeshine boy extraordinaire Andy Dwyer; and Aubrey Plaza ("Funny People") as Andy's wife, April, who doubles as Ron's sullen assistant. Also starring are Retta ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") as the fun-loving Donna Meagle and Jim O'Heir ("Castle") as the department's punching bag, Jerry Gergich.

"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") and David Miner ("30 Rock"), Daniel J. Goor (Late Night with Conan O'Brien") and Morgan Sackett ("Seinfeld") also serve as executive producers for the series.
