NBC's "Parks and Recreation" goes into the wilderness for its October 13th episode entitled "Pawnee Rangers". The show airs at 8:30 pm. In the episode, Ron takes his troop, The Pawnee Rangers, intothe wild. In an effort to fight the inequality of Ron's (Nick Offerman's) boys-only wilderness group, Leslie (Amy Poehler) takes her girls-only troop, the Pawnee Goddesses, on an adventure weekend. Meanwhile, Tom (Aziz Ansari) and Donna (Retta) force Ben (Adam Scott) to join them for a day of relaxation, and Chris (Rob Lowe) finds a reason to spend time with Jerry (Jim O'Heir). Rashida Jones, Chris Pratt, and Aubrey Plaza also star.
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.
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"), hates the very government he works for, and sports one of the most impressive moustaches on primetime television. Rounding out the cast are Leslie's love interest, Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott, "Tell Me You Love Me," "Party Down"), her best friend, Ann (Rashida Jones, "I Love You, Man," "The Office"), shoeshine boy extraordinaire Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt, "Everwood"), and his wife, April (Aubrey Plaza, "Funny People"), who doubles as Ron's sullen assistant. Also starring are Retta ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") as the fun-loving Donna Meagle and Jim O'Heir ("Castle") as the department's punching bag Jerry Gergich.
