“Parks and Recreation” has already offered up an extended look at Leslie’s trip to Washington. A new trailer for Season 5 gives a look at what’s happening in other early episodes too — including the event referenced in the headline.
Ron’s (Nick Offerman) face-painting, as far as we can tell, does not involve either of his ex-wives. The out-of-character moment (at the 19-second mark in the video), which also involves a green boa, instead comes at the hands of two little girls playing dress-up in their front yard. Another adult is there too. We are intriuged.
You’ll also see Leslie (Amy Poehler) giving Ben (Adam Scott) a virtual tour of her new Pawnee City Council office and its not entirely private bathroom; Andy (Chris Pratt) having a bit of a Ricky Bobby moment while he trains for the police academy; Leslie with an extremely unfortunate perm (a very brief shot at the 29-second mark); and Ann (Rashida Jones) taking a page from the Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) playbook. And also dressing like a cowgirl.
“Parks and Rec” opens its fifth season at 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday (Sept. 20) on NBC. Here’s the trailer:
