Best workplace sitcoms to stream

Wonderwall Logo By Topher Gauk-Roger of Wonderwall | Slide 2 of 25: Coming from the creator of "The Office," the long-running comedy "Parks and Recreation" takes the same mockumentary approach to a regular workplace and applies it to the hijinks of a local governing body. It follows the disgruntled staff of the Parks Department of the fictional small town Pawnee, Indiana, and their painfully perky and optimistic leader, Leslie Knope. The show underwent some retooling after a disappointing first season, building a winning ensemble that includes Nick Offerman, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Rob Lowe and Chris Pratt. Critics were bowled over by the program's ability to balance laugh-out-loud moments with immense heart, and it received numerous Emmy nominations as well as a Golden Globe Award during its seven-season run. It even attracted real-life political figures such as John McCain, Joe Biden and Michelle Obama to join in on the fun with cameo appearances. All 126 episodes can be streamed on Peacock.
