On the Set: Parks and Recreation Plans to “Go Big or Go Home” in Season 3

Parks and Recreation

In a rousing moment from the Season 3 premiere of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope excitedly rounds up her disbanded parks department. Tom's been working at Foot Locker, Ron's been in his wood shop, and Jerry ... well, Jerry's been relaxing happily since Pawnee's local government went out of business at the end of last season. With her troops gathered, Leslie makes her Hail Mary play, a bold proposal to the state auditors threatening to shut down the broke branch for good.

"She's like, 'Go big or go home,'" says Amy Poehler, who plays TV's chirpiest and most resilient civil servant. "'I say we put on this giant harvest festival. We try to get all the vendors, all the people in town, we raise the money we need for the parks department budget. If we don't make it, we're all fired.'"

Leslie’s high-stakes dilemma is not unlike the one faced by Parks as the show nears its return. read more

TVGuide.com: How is the show different this season?
Jones:
I hope that people who watch The Office can now see that it's definitely different, but it's the kind of thing that you would want to watch if you like that show.
