BBC Four confirms ‘Parks and Recreation’ deal

BBC Four has picked up the rights to air Emmy nominated US series, ‘Parks and Recreation‘.

BBC Four Controller Richard Klein says: “BBC Four is in really great shape at the moment, with share continuing to increase. We’ve had a great critical and audience response to recent programmes, from Food Glorious Food to the Big Science season; and of course, the much anticipated return of The Killing III which launched with over a million viewers.

“Looking ahead, there’s much to look forward to and I’m delighted that we have acquired Parks And Recreation, one of America’s smartest comedy series.”

‘Parks And Recreation’ is currently on its fifth series in the US and is an ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), a cheerful, hard-working, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, and her eclectic mix of office mates. In her role as Deputy Director, Leslie works tirelessly to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun and serves on several committees like the Clean Restroom Task Force, the Fun in the Sun Committee and the Task Force to Reduce the Number of Public Restrooms.
