The show's first season will begin airing on BBC Four on Wednesday, March 6 at 10pm. The broadcaster will launch the show with a double bill of episodes.
Parks and Recreation stars Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Mean Girls) as Leslie Knope, an optimistic, mid-level bureaucrat who works at the Parks department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
The comedy - which is currently airing its fifth season in the US - was co-created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur (NBC's The Office) and also stars Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott and Rob Lowe.
BBC Four boss Richard Klein has described the show as one of America's "smartest comedy series".
Season one of Parks and Recreation only includes six episodes, but the BBC is expected to broadcast the 24-episode run of season two immediately after the first.
