#TeamParksAndRec

"Parks and Recreation" is one of America's favorite comedies. Starring Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, "Parks and Rec" ran for seven seasons and has a very dedicated following. 

Read the synopsis, per IMDB:

Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park. However, what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape, and a myriad of other challenges.

Read the synopsis, per IMDB:

"Veep" follows the new VP Selina Meyer as she puts out political fires, juggles her public schedule and private life, and does everything within her limited powers to improve her dysfunctional relationship with the chief executive.
