Parks and Recreation

(2009)

Parks and Recreation Synopsis

The comedic minds that brought you The Office, King of the Hill and Saturday Night Live now conspire to create Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler plays Leslie Knope, a mid-level government employee who is trying to convert an abandoned construction pit into a usable community park while a documentary camera crew follows her every step and misstep. In her path are the typical defensive bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, real estate developers and single-issue fanatics determined to prevent her from doing any good in her community.
