Preview: "Parks & Recreation"

What happens when a well-intentioned but clueless manager of a parks and recreation department goes on a campaign to make a park out of a dirt pit?

You get NBC's newest comedy, starring Amy Poehler of "Saturday Night Live".

Set in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana, the show was developed by Mike Schur and Greg Daniels of "The Office."

It's shot in the same mockumentary style and co-stars "Office" cast mate Rashida Jones.

"Parks and Recreation" is shot almost entirely in L.A., but the show's creators did meticulous research into Hoosier life so that the references on the show are true to Indiana.

The show premiers Thursday night on NBC.
