“We always joke that ‘Parks’ is like the comedy ‘Wire.’ If ‘The Wire‘ was a comedy and it was a small town,” Poehler said. “I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again: I think our cast is the best on TV in comedy or drama. If you put our cast in any other show— ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Mad Men‘ — we’d all be able to deliver. Singing, dancing, drama, sex, documentary—all of it.”
On the next season of “Parks and Recreation,” Peohler said she’s not quite show where the story line is going to go.
“I don’t know anything! The writers are back now; [show runner and cocreator] Mike Schur and I have been talking about ideas for next year,” she said. “If things fall into place, there are some big changes happening, but nothing is cemented yet.”
