Tell everyone you know to set their DVRs for April 30th on NBC. Because for one night only, one of the best sitcoms in the history of television will be getting back together for a special episode.

Have you thought about what Leslie Knope would be doing during the pandemic?  We are going to find out. Parks and Recreation will return for one episode to see the how Leslie can stay in touch with her friends from the small town of Pawnee Indiana while practicing social distancing.

And All of the show’s core cast — Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta will return for the one night special.

NBC is on the record saying a few more familiar faces may show up as well.

The one-night episode will raise money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund, which helps food banks secure the resources they need to serve the most vulnerable members of their communities.

State Farm and Subaru will make $150,000 matching donations. The shows cast, producers, and NBC Universal pledged $500,000 in donations to be made through May 21.

I am so excited, I am not going to be able to sleep for a week. This is the same feeling that Pawnee gets when they see Lil Sebastian.

I am Rebekah and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
