"ANN'S DECISION"

02/07/2013 (08:30PM - 09:00PM) (Thursday) : ANN TAKES SOME TIME TO DATE HERSELF - After several unsuccessful relationships Ann (Rashida Jones) makes a dramatic life decision. Ben (Adam Scott) enlists the help of Chris (Rob Lowe), Tom (AZIZ ANSARI) and Ron (Nick Offerman) to choose a caterer for the wedding, while April (Aubrey Plaza) has to handle one of Leslie's usual tasks. Chris Pratt, Jim O'Heir and Retta also star.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur (NBC's "The Office," "Saturday Night Live"), "Parks and Recreation" is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Emmy nominee Amy Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "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 more fun.??

Since its premiere in 2009, the critically-acclaimed series has been included on dozens of television critics' Top 10 lists. 2011 was an especially notable year for the show: the series received its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, was honored by AFI as one of the top 10 Television Programs of the Year, received a Writers Guild Award nomination and was named "TV's Smartest Comedy" in Entertainment Weekly's 2011 cover story. Additionally accolades include Amy Poehler's two Emmy nominations for her performance, Television Critics Award nominations for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, Program of the Year and Individual Achievement in Comedy for Poehler and co-star Nick Offerman.

In the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, Leslie's office mates include Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe, "Brothers and Sisters," "The West Wing"), a health nut who wants to live to be 150 years old, and Tom Haverford (AZIZ ANSARI, "Human Giant," "Scrubs"), a fashion-obsessed wannabe player whose greatest dream is to own his own nightclub. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, "Children's Hospital"), hates the very government he works for, and sports one of the most impressive moustaches on primetime television. Rounding out the cast are Leslie's love interest, Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott, "Tell Me You Love Me," "Party Down"), her best friend, Ann (Rashida Jones, "I Love You, Man," "The Office"), shoeshine boy extraordinaire Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt, "Everwood"), and his wife, April (Aubrey Plaza, "Funny People"), who doubles as Ron's sullen assistant. Also starring are Retta ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") as the fun-loving Donna Meagle and Jim O'Heir ("Castle") as the department's punching bag, Jerry Gergich.??

"Parks and Recreation" is a production of Deedle-Dee Productions, Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment and Universal Television. Along with Daniels and Schur, Howard Klein ("The Office") and David Miner ("30 Rock") also serve as executive producers for the series.
