TV show description:
In this Office-style comedy, documentary cameras follow mid-level bureaucrat Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) in her job at the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. She hopes to improve her town while advancing her career and helping her to ultimately become the first female President of the United States.
Leslie takes on what should be a fairly simple project; to help a local nurse, Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones), turn an abandoned construction pit into a community park. Ann has a personal interest in the project since her boyfriend, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt), is a musician who broke his legs falling into a pit on the site.
