Default Read an oral history of Parks and Recreation's Galentine's Day

It's been nine years since Parks and Recreation turned the day before Valentine's Day into a "Galentine's Day" to celebrate female friendship. "The idea came about because the show was always pitched as a show about female friendship the pilot was about Leslie and Ann meeting for the first time and becoming friends," says co-creator Michael Schur. Adds Amy Poehler: "I love that the show celebrated female friendship in such a pure way. Leslie and Ann were always on each other's team. They shared a deep connection and never gave up on each other, even knowing how different they were. But I think the real reason the relationship worked is because I am in love and obsessed with Rashida (Jones) in the same way Leslie is. She is my wife for life."
