Amy Poehler Plays Parks and Recreation

Amy Poehler‘s new TV series, Parks and Recreation (previously rumored to be Public Service) will premiere on Thursday, April 9.

The new NBC comedy features Poehler as optimistic town official Leslie Knope in Indiana, who turns a construction pit into a park while trying to mentor a bored college-aged intern (Aubrey Plaza, not pictured).

Helmed by The Office exec producers, Parks and Recreation will mimic the show’s mockumentary style. Rashida Jones and Aziz Ansari (both pictured) play a nurse and a government official, respectively.

Earlier this week, Amy and Rashida were spotted filming the premiere ep at a playground.
