The Universal Politics of Parks and Rec


The LA Times has a great interview with Amy Poehler about NYC, Parks and Rec, SNL and all sorts of other things. Here’s a great quote about the political leanings of Parks and Rec: “Well, what has been fun about playing Leslie is getting to a very local level. Everybody’s macro ideas of how they feel about taxes and gay marriage and whatever fade when you are actually doing the day-to-day work. Both conservatives and liberals watch Parks and Recreation, and they each think the show is for them, which is really cool.”
