"Parks and Rec" star gets our hopes up, dashes them

"Parks and Rec" star gets our hopes up, dashes them

Adam Scott, who can currently be seen as former teen mayor/current Leslie Knope paramour Ben Wyatt on NBC's highlight-of-our-week sitcom "Parks and Recreation" tweeted, "Check out this photo from a pilot I worked on in '03--PHILLY JUSTICE," along with this photo:

Scott, of course, is joking. The photo is just a picture of "Parks and Rec" stars (from left) Amy Poehler, Scott, guest stars Kathryn Hahn and Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones (Rudd is currently appearing as Poehler's political rival in her race for City Council, while Hahn will soon play a member of Rudd's poltical team.)

But, dear lord, do we wish this was a real show. We're thinking a procedural in the vein of the quickly canceled Kim Delaney vehicle "Philly" from 2001. Or what about a take on "Hack" with Poehler as the world-weary cabbie instead of David Morse. Although, considering the talent, it would have to be hilarious. Please feel free to come up with other fake scenarios for this array of talent to star in. Let us know what you come up with in the comments. We weep for what this could have been.

"Parks and Recreation" currently airs at 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays, but will take a break starting March 15 to make way for "Community," which will resume its 8 p.m. slot, with "30 Rock" moving to 8:30 p.m. Don't worry, "Parks and Rec" fans! It will be back at 9:30 p.m. to air its final four episodes on April 19, when "Up All Night" is finished its run.
