TV: Parks and Recreation now filming

Amy Poehler's New Show Starts Today
Today 11:48 AM PST by Kristin Dos Santos

This just in from our spies over at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood: Amy Poehler's new NBC comedy, Parks and Recreation, has officially started filming today!

Why is this such good news?

Because the script rocks (yes, we've read it), and P&R (not to be confused with Y&R) looks to be the next NBC comedy that's made of 100 percent awesome, thanks to Poehler and the creative efforts of Office mastermind Greg Daniels and Mike Schur (Mose!).

She asks Amy some questions about the show. Here's the relevant-to-Rashida ones...

How's it having Rashida Jones (Ann) as your friend on the show?
I'm excited about the idea of us, because you don't see it as much in television, the idea of this female friendship. I think Leslie gets really excited that she's got this new friend, and Rashida plays a very attractive nurse. Leslie is just really excited to be around her, much like when I'm around Rashida. There's some comedy in how much Leslie wants to be friends with her. It's a little too fast.

It's a little bit of a girl crush?
It is a little bit of a girl crush, and she goes a little too fast. In the pilot, we meet on the second day; we're not best friends but I think we're really close, but Leslie's just moving way too fast.

I thought they were already filming the pilot at that playground a couple weeks ago? And lol at Kristin's "sneak peeks" being the promos already out.
