Which Parks and Rec character are you? (Quiz)

Aren’t you curious which Parks and Rec character are you? In this blog post you find which character you relate to most, and you will also find all about the new special episode of Parks and Rec!

Parks and Recreation, a comedy series

Parks and Recreation traces the daily life of a department of the same name in an imaginary city in the state of Indiana. The main character, a job-obsessed civil servant, wants to go so big in politics that one day she will be involved in a sexual scandal with the vice president of the United States, she being the president.

Her boss and the director of the department are libertarians convinced that the state must not interfere at all in the lives of the citizens. Therefore, he comes to the office only to have a place to come to and is always happy when a subordinate asks for a day off. In fact, apart from the protagonist, everyone is distinguished by extreme incompetence and laziness.

The series “Parks and Recreation” was broadcasted for seven seasons during 2009-2015, during which time it gained a lot of passionate fans.

US Vice President Joe Biden and former First Lady Michelle Obama have made special appearances in the last episodes of the series, and Poehler has been awarded the Golden Globe for playing the character Leslie, a park administration official.

You are…April Ludgate!

You are cool, witty, and a teensy bit evil. You love a good drink and a good insult. You sometimes have trouble articulating your feelings, so you find other ways to express your love.

New special episode in 2020

The cast of the popular comedy series “Parks and Recreation” will reunite in a special episode made for the benefit of the fight against coronavirus, informed the Press Association in late April 2020.

The stars of the series, including Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman, Rob Lowe, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza and Jim O’Heir, will return to the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana, NBC told.

The action will take place at the moment, the character played by Poehler, Leslie Knope, trying to keep in touch with colleagues from the park administration during the social distance.

Like a lot of people, we looked for ways to contribute and we thought that if we put these characters together for one night, we’d be able to raise some money,” said the show’s creator, Mike Schur.

I sent an optimistic email to the team and they all responded in 45 minutes. Our old ‘Parks and Rec’ team brought to life a slice of over 30 minutes of quarantined life in Pawnee and we hope that everyone will be happy. And that they will donate!

The money raised will go to the COVID-19 Response Fund set up by the charity Feeding America, which helps food banks across the United States.

The series “Parks and Recreation” was broadcast for seven seasons during 2009-2015, during which time it developed a base of passionate fans.

US Vice President Joe Biden and former First Lady Michelle Obama have made special appearances in recent episodes of the series, and Poehler has been awarded the Golden Globe for playing the character Leslie, a park administration official.

The special episode was broadcasted in the United States on April 30.
