“She even surpassed our expectations. Not only is she gorgeous and an incredible actress, but she is insanely hilarious to boot. I think everybody on set was just bowled over with how funny she was on the show.” Parks And Recreation co-creator, Michael Schur says Clarkson’s character, Tammy One will be “very different” from that of Ron’s other ex-wife Tammy Two (Megan Mullally).

“The relationship she has with Ron is not a hedonistic animal attraction that we’ve seen before,” he says. “They have a more complicated and rich back-story that we get into and delve into.”

Parks and Recreation screens on Tuesday, July 24 th at 9pm on FOUR. “[Leslie] attacks the problem from every angle and comes to the conclusion that there’s no way to have a relationship and to follow her dream of running for office,” Parks and Recreation showrunner, Michael Schur explains about the series fourth season.

“So, the premiere is about her trying to make a decision about which one she wants to do.”

“The last scene in the premiere is the everything-comes-to-a-head scene with Ben and Leslie. It’s a very interesting, fraught scene. And it was grade-A acting on both of their parts. I’m really excited to see how people react.”

Schur also says season four will see Tom’s (Aziz Ansari) new business “overlap with regular parks business” and that viewers will also meet a member of Jerry’s (Jim O’Heir) family.

Then there’s April (Aubrey Plaza), who really hated Andy (Chris Pratt) for letting Ann kiss him, and Ron (Nick Offerman), who flat-out hates his ex.
