Parks and Recreation is one of my favorite comfort shows. It’s something I can put on to brighten my mood, and it never fails.
On his YouTube channel Behind the Curtain, N.T. Jordan, pulled together some of the best interview clips of co-creator Michael Schur (also the creator of The Good Place) and others discussing where this idea came from and how they went about telling the story of Leslie Knope and the Parks Department.
Lots of great lessons here, and you can find many more on the Behind the Curtain channel, so be sure to check that out.
