Photo Flash: NBC's PARKS AND RECREATION Celebrates 100th Episode
"Parks and Recreation" cast, crew and NBCUniversal executives celebrated the comedy's 100th episode on set in Studio City, CA, with a cake stacked high with Leslie Knope's (Amy Poehler) favorite food, waffles. Check out photos from the celebration below!
From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels ("The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur ("The Office," NBC's "Saturday Night Live"), "Parks and Recreation" is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Emmy and Golden Globe 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.
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," sporting one of the most impressive moustaches on Primetime television), hates the very government he works for. Leslie is supported by Ben Wyatt, her husband and former campaign manager (Adam Scott, "Friends with Kids," "Party Down"); her best friend, Ann (Rashida Jones, "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "The Office"); former shoeshine boy extraordinaire, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt, "Zero Dark Thirty," "Moneyball"); and Andy's wife, April, the disinterested intern now the Director of Animal Control (Aubrey Plaza, "Funny People"). Rounding out the Parks and Recreation staff are the fun-loving Donna Meagle (Retta, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and the department's punching bag, Jerry Gergich (Jim O'Heir, "Castle").
