"Weirdos Who Care"
An NBC Original Series:
Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, Emmy Award-winning executive producers of the hit NBC series The Office, reunite for this mockumentary-style series following a mid-level bureaucrat (Amy Poehler) as she attempts to simultaneously beautify the town of Pawnee, Indiana and advance her career. Leslie Knope (Poehler) works for the department of Parks and Recreation. Determined to beautify her small town and make a name for herself at the same time, she joins local nurse Ann Logan (Rashida Jones) in taking a stand against the defensive bureaucrats, troublesome neighbors, greedy real estate developers, and single-issue zealots who wield lawsuits and city codes like weapons of warfare, and distort the democratic process to achieve their own personal gain.
