'Parks & Recreation' Cast Reuniting for Scripted Special Taking Place in Social Distancing Era

The cast of the beloved NBC series Parks and Recreation will be reuniting for a scripted special that will raise money for food banks amid the ongoing health crisis.

Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, and Jim O’Heir are all confirmed to reprise their roles in the special, which will air on Thursday, April 30 at 8:30pm ET on NBC.

Here’s a synopsis of the special (via TV Line): “Pawnee’s most dedicated civil servant, Leslie Knope, is determined to stay connected to her friends in a time of social distancing.”

Michael Schur, the executive producer of the series, said, “Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money. I sent a hopeful email to the cast, and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old Parks and Rec team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life, and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!”

Fans are encouraged to donate to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund during the special. NBCUniversal, the Parks and Rec cast, and sponsors State Farm and Subaru of America will be matching donations up to $500,000 as well.

Aziz Ansari Addresses Sexual Misconduct Scandal During Stand-Up Special

Aziz Ansari is discussing his widely publicized sexual misconduct scandal during his new Netflix stand-up special, Right Now.

The 36-year-old comedian opened up about the situation during the special.

“I haven’t said much about that whole thing, but I’ve talked about it on this tour, because you’re here and it means a lot to me. And I’m sure some of you are curious how I feel about that whole situation. And it’s a tricky thing for me to answer ’cause I felt so many things in the last year or so. There’s times I felt scared. There’s times I felt humiliated. There’s times I felt embarrassed. And ultimately, I just felt terrible that this person felt this way. And after a year or so, I just hope it was a step forward,” he said to the crowd.

“It moved things forward for me and made me think about a lot. I hope I’ve become a better person. And I always think about a conversation I had with one of my friends where he was like, ‘You know what, man? That whole thing made me think about every date I’ve ever been on.’ And I thought, ‘Wow. Well, that’s pretty incredible. It’s made not just me, but other people be more thoughtful, and that’s a good thing.’ And that’s how I feel about it…and I know this isn’t the most hilarious way to begin a comedy show. But it’s important to me that you know how I feel about that whole thing before we share this night together.”

Amy Poehler & 'Parks & Rec' Team Reveal If a Revival Might Happen One Day

Amy Poehler waves to the crowd while walking on stage for the Parks and Recreation reunion panel during 2019 PaleyFest on Thursday (March 21) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The Emmy-winning actress was joined at the event by her former co-stars Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Retta, Jim O’Heir, and Rob Lowe.

The panel was moderated by Patton Oswalt, who was a guest star on the series.

During the event, series co-creator Mike Schur opened up about the possibility of a revival.

“Everyone on this stage — and like 6 other people — would have to feel like there was a story that needed to be told,” he said (via THR).

“The show had an argument to make,” he added. “The argument was about teamwork and friendship and positivity being optimistic and not getting cynical and believing that people can do good and believing in the power of public service and believing that if you work hard and you put your head down and believe in the people around you who are part of your team, that good things are possible. That you’ll achieve the things you want to achieve, and I don’t feel like we left anything on the table. I feel like the show sort of made its argument. And we also — maybe this was like a preventative measure or something — we did jumped ahead to the year, like, 2074.”

Amy said on the red carpet that she would be down for a revival.

“I am so not cool, so from minute one I’ve been like I’m down. Tell me where to go, I’ll clear my schedule,” she said. “I mean, Mike Schur currently produces and writes on I think 14 shows, so it’ll really be whenever he is ‘tech avail,’ as we like to say in the biz. But yeah, I’m ready.”

FYI: Aubrey is wearing a Jonathan Simkhai dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Zoe Chicco earrings, and State Property rings.
