Parks and Recreation Hot Shots: Ms. Knope Goes to Washington!

Leslie Knope and Ben Wyatt are hightailing it to Washington D.C. in Parks and Recreation‘s fifth season (bowing Thursday, Sept. 20), and we’ve got your first look at their fun-filled trip to the East Coast.

The NBC comedy’s Season 5 opener — and beyond — finds the Pawnee lovebirds in the nation’s capital for political strategist Ben’s new job on a national campaign. And while they’re there — with Andy and April in tow! — they’ll mix it up with a slew of U.S. Senators like Barbara Boxer (California), John McCain (Arizona) and Olympia Snowe (Maine).

    I was thisclose to running the three blocks from my office to the White House to see them film. At least one of my senators will be making an appearance. Go Olympia!

  2. Katie says:

    So excited for the new season to start!

  3. Mcgoria says:

    Not to nitpick, but that should be “nation’s” capital. I wish I could have gotten to see them while they were here too!

  4. B says:

    Ahhh! I was totally there when they shot the scenes on the second picture. So excited to see how it turned out. Was completely in awe to see this talented cast up close and personal

  5. Rock Golf says:

    “Pictured: (l-r) Senator John McCain, Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope”

    Thanks for making that (l-r) distinction. I’d never have guessed otherwise.

  6. Adam says:

    Oh, I can’t wait for them to come back!! I miss them!!

  7. Miffy says:

    A. Washington DC is not a “state capital”.
    B. Nobody watches this show.

  8. Leslie is clearly a Democrat! No Obama run-ins? or hell Pelosi?!

    I recently got into parks and rec and watched every episode on Netflix in a little over a month. I am more excited about season 5 than I’ve ever been about any tv show. Love that the gang is going to washington especially with the upcoming election.
