PARKS AND RECREATION
SBS 2, 7.05pm
The Summer Heights High of local council administration finds a happy home on SBS TWO. Set in the fictional American town of Pawnee, Parks and Recreation tells the story of a team led by Leslie Knope ( Amy Poehler) who is charged with managing the town’s public amenities. While it doesn’t immediately sound like a recipe for thigh- smacking laughter, the excellent series has earned praise from critics across the US – and tonight’s pilot shows why.
