The Thursday evening serial follows the misdeeds and shenanigans of a small-town Indiana parks and recreation department. Deputy Director Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, tries to hold the department together despite the incompetence of her staff, especially the entrepreneurial Tom Haverford (played by Aziz Ansari), and the obstructionism of her anti-government director Ron Swanson, played by Nick Offerman.
Another NBA personality, former Indiana Pacers star Detlef Schrempf, previously appeared on the show, first as a special guest on a city-wide telethon and then as a consultant for Tom Haverford’s Entertainment 720 media group. Schrempf broke the news of Hibbert’s appearance on Twitter.
Lots of fun on the set of Park & Rec. Aziz Anzari & Ben Schwartz are hilarious! Gotta give it up for Roy Hibbert for his first acting gig!
We can only hope that Hibbert measures up to Swanson’s high standards of greatness.
