The Not-Spinoff's Premise Revealed!

The Not-Spinoff's Premise Revealed! I guess this is a big deal. It feels like a big deal, even though it's just information and not actual content. Anyway, the much-anticipated Greg Daniels/Amy Poehler/Aziz Ansari series is still untitled, but it does have a premise now! It will be set in the hilarrrrious world of the outdoorsy branch of local government! The show will mirror The Office's mockumentary style, and will follow Poehler as Leslie Knope, a "mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana."

Knope tries to improve her town via the Park and Rec., and teams up with fellow bureaucrat Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari. Who, I'd like to repeat, is named Tom Haverford in this.), and a local nurse (for some reason) played by Rashida Jones to turn a construction pit into a park, which is hotly contested by some people, somehow. It's basically the city council parts of Waiting for Guffman: The Show, but with park rangers. Which is actually a pretty good idea. I grew up in a family of local bureaucrats, and small town politics are so retarded, I can't even tell you.

Thoughts on the premise? And why everything is so damn hush-hush about this thing? It's not state secrets here, people. And why can they come up with a premise, a completed pilot script and a cast, but not a title?
