Parks and Recreation: Poised to Shoot Premiere On Location in Washington, D.C.

According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, the cast and crew of Parks and Recreation will be filming scenes for the season 5 premiere and potentially more season 5 episodes on location in Washington, D.C. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which gives some scoop on the show filming in D.C.:

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the NBC comedy is looking to shoot scenes on location in D.C. for the premiere and perhaps beyond. Parks‘ leading lady Amy Poehler is also expected to make the trek, presumably so Leslie can help her beau get acclimated to his new city.

It was always Parks‘ EP Michael Schur’s intention to follow through on the finale twist that had Ben accepting a job working for a national campaign, thereby creating another obstacle for him and Leslie.

“We want to make it real,” Schur recently told “We don’t want to have it be that in the premiere all of a sudden he’s back. That would be pointless. He’s going to be gone for a while.”

My thoughts: I’m personally really excited that Parks and Recreation will be filming on location in Washington D.C. in season 5, because I think it’s always great when a show can film in the same place where the show is set. I have to say that I’m really looking forward to season 5 now that Leslie has been elected as city councilwoman of Pawnee. It will be really interesting to see how that changes the show as a whole.
