Upcoming seventh and final season scheduled to premiere mid season.
In Season 5, the show follows Leslie Knope (Emmy nominee Amy Poehler) a mid-level bureaucrat turned City Councilwoman, and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun.
Does Pawnee have someone with the intelligence, popularity and political savvy to run for higher office? Knope. When Leslie is finally approached with the possibility of mounting a political campaign for public office, it could be a dream come true. But can she balance her political ambition with her forbidden romance with Ben while keeping it a secret from Chris? This has the makings of an explosive political scandal. And Leslie isn't the only one with a dream.
A girl's gotta dream. Especially Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler). Leslie just wants one thing in life - to beautify her small town. Too bad she works in local politics, where everyone says no to everything, and that's not about to change anytime soon. This season, the government is back up and running and the State Department auditing team (starring Rob Lowe and Adam Scott) permanently join the Parks and Recreation staff in order to ensure everyone is playing by the book.
Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Baby Mama) stars as Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. In an attempt to beautify her town - and advance her career - Leslie takes on defensive bureaucrats, cranky neighbors, real estate developers, and single-issue fanatics whose weapons are lawsuits, the jumble of city codes and the very democratic process that Leslie loves so much.
The documentary cameras follow Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Dept. of Pawnee, Indiana. Leslie takes on what should be a fairly simple project: help nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) turn an abandoned construction pit into a community park. Leslie is alternately helped and undermined by her colleague Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), thwarted by her boss Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) and aided by charismatic city planner Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider).
