The department has been nationally-accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) since 2004. Reviewing Leslie and Ron” earlier this week , I wrote that part of the attraction of Parks and Recreation, specifically Leslie and Ron’s friendship, is that it’s a mannequin-or fantasy-of how people of reverse politics can nonetheless work together and care about each other.
From Emmy Award-successful executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC’s “The Workplace,” “King of the Hill”) and Michael Schur (NBC’s “The Office,” “Saturday Evening Stay”), “Parks and Recreation” is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Amy Poehler, NBC’s “Saturday Evening Reside,” “Baby Mama”), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit extra enjoyable.
Schur also reminded reporters that Rob Lowe first signed up for eight episodes, but he stayed for 75. “He had such a good time and we had such an excellent time with him that we rewrote Season 3 to let him around,” and in the end, he was on “Parks and Rec” “eight times as long as we thought we were going to keep him,” Schur noted.
Parents must know that teenagers who watch Parks and Recreation will discover a mockumentary-style sitcom from the creators of The Workplace with grownup-oriented humor in terms of sexual content, alcohol, and language (together with slightly bleeped swearing).
The original plan was for Lowe’s Chris Traeger to appear for just a few episodes because the Indiana state auditor sent right down to Pawnee to help with their monetary situation, however the character worked nicely sufficient for Traeger to stick around for 3 and a half extra seasons as the town’s performing city manager.
