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).
