My visit to the ‘Parks and Recreation’ set

This was in my hotel room when I arrived Thursday night. Is that sweet or what?
Parks and Recreation

Greg Daniels like to jump rope at the office. Whenever there is a break in the discussion, he’ll get out his rope and jump for a minute, then resume whatever he was doing.

The Parks and Recreation set is bigger, brighter, and newer than The Office set. It still has that “new car smell.” The PandR set is at a real TV studio; ‘The Office’ set is in a scary neighborhood where junkyard dogs roam wild.

Dan Goor is a writer for the show and self-proclaimed master of the fart joke. And when Mike introduced Dan to me, I gave him that look, like, I know you from somewhere, I just don’t know where. He finally revealed that he played “hot dog guy,” or Karen Filippelli’s husband from The Office episode ‘Lecture Circuit’ Part 1!

Dean Holland, award-winning editor for The Office, works on Parks and Recreation.
