On Saturday night, The Paley Center for Media hosted a panel for the cast and creators of NBC's Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Paul Schneider and Aubrey Plaza held court along with series creators Michael Schur and Greg Daniels (The Office). IGN TV was there to get an inside look at the hilarious spirit of this sophomore surprise. Season 1 of Parks and Recreation, which was just 6 episodes, was received politely (perhaps even coldly) but it also came with ton of comparisons to its bigger, more famous brother, The Office. Everyone is in agreement these days that Parks has not only gotten a hell of a lot funnier, but it often stands out as the funniest NBC offering on Thursdays. What's been the difference maker?

Poehler said that the internal tweaks that they made to the show were fairly small and were just little creative ways to figure out how to include everyone on the show. To Read More Click Here .

Actor-producer-screenwriter-all-around Renaissance man Justin Theroux is joining Parks and Recreation (a.k.a. this fall's most improved comedy) in a major recurring role, sources confirm to me exclusively. Theroux, whose previous tube work includes stints on The District, Ally McBeal, and Sex and the City, has been cast as a friend of Ann's (Rashida Jones) and a potential love interest for Leslie (Amy Poehler). His first episode is slated to air in early 2010. Last month it was announced that Theroux had signed on to produce a big-screen comedy for Paramount set in the world of air guitar competitions. He also wrote the screenplays for Tropic Thunder and the upcoming Iron Man 2. And played everyone from Jesus Christ to John Hancock. A one-trick pony he's not. Source Here
