Amy Poehler needs to go big or go home

NBC's  TV series, Parks and Recreation  starring Saturday Night Live's alumnus, Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Rashida Jones is ready for a comeback with its Season 3 premiere. The first episode of season 3, Go Big or Go Home, shows Leslie [Poehler] trying to convince Chris [Rob Lowe] and Ben [Adam Scott, "Stepbrothers" ] to give the Parks Department more money.

The mockumentary, follows Leslie Knope (Poehler, "Baby Mama") a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. Highly passionate about advancing her career while making a difference.  Leslie finds hilarious, often elaborate, methods to make her 'points' clear to her team and boss.  Opposing her are defensive bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, real estate developers, and single-issue fanatics -- whose weapons are lawsuits, the jumble of city codes, and the very democratic process that Leslie loves so much.

Fans of Amy Poehler can also catch her on Ellen this week. 

Parks and Recreation can be seen Thursdays at 8:30 CST, on NBC.
