The abstract antics of an Indiana town's public officials as they pursue random projects to make their city a better place.
From The Office masterminds comes this new mockumentary following the not-so-glamorous lives of local government workers in Pawnee, Ind. Amy Poehler stars as Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat who dreams of becoming the first female president of the United States. In the opener, she decides to help a nurse (Rashida Jones) turn an abandoned construction pit into a community park. It should be a fairly simple project, but accurately enough, navigating local bureaucracy proves to be a pain in the you-know-what.
