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.
