Parks and Recreation Season 5 Premiere Ms. Knope Goes To Washington'

Parks and Recreation “Ms. Knope Goes To Washington” Season 5 Premiere airs Thursday September 20 on NBC (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET).

Episode Synopsis: Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Andy (Chris Pratt) visit Ben (Adam Scott) and April (Aubrey Plaza) at their new jobs in Washington D.C., and Leslie feels overwhelmed by the city — especially after meeting two of her idols (Senators Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe). Meanwhile, Ron (Nick Offerman) throws a “thank you” barbeque for the entire Parks and Recreation staff. Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta also star.

Show Summary: 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 landed on dozens of critics’ “Top 10” lists in its second and third seasons. It 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.
