An ensemble cast including Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Paul Schneider, Nick Offerman joined Poehler.  Poehler played Deputy Director of the Parks Department, Leslie Knope, in the fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana. After the first season received mixed reception, the show's second season received more positive reviews.  One key change between seasons one and two was to distinguish the character of Leslie from Michael Scott, the central character of The Office. Parks decidedly down-played Leslie's ditziness from season 1 and instead emphasized her intelligence, work ethic, and earnest nature.  A second season episode, Galentine's Day, included a new holiday Leslie created celebrating female friendship on February 13. Galentine's Day has since transcended the show with real life celebrations. Adam Scott, and Rob Lowe joined the show at the end of season two with Scott playing Leslie's eventual love interest Ben.  At the end of filming season two, Poehler was once again pregnant. The show began producing the first six episodes of season three without a break to accommodate the pregnancy.  Poehler was again nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2011.  In 2011, the show won a Peabody Award for "developing a hilarious venue to explore the good side of American democracy in an age when that side is so rarely on display. "
