NBC’s Amy Poehler-fronted Parks and Recreation just went from Must-See TV to Wild-Horses-Couldn’t-Drag-Me-Away TV.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the hilarious Chris Pratt has been added to the dream ensemble. The Everwood grad (and future Mr. Anna Faris) will play the unemployed musician boyfriend of Rashida Jones’ nurse character.
The well-pedigreed Parks and Recreation — The Office‘s Greg Daniels and Michael Schur are producing — premieres Thursday, April 9.
The only thing that could make this show better is if they hired Cheri Oteri to play Poehler’s wacky assistant. (Hint, hint, Greg Daniels. Nudge, nudge, Michael Schur.)
