(NEXSTAR) – The cast members of “Parks and Recreation” are coming together for a half-hour NBC special set in the coronavirus pandemic that will help raise money for Feeding America.

The scripted special will feature your favorite Pawnee public servants played by Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta.

“It’s true! We’ve already filmed the episode!,” Mouse Rat frontman Chris Pratt said on Twitter. “Many are saying it’s the greatest episode of television ever to be filmed in Quarantine. It’s not a competition. But if it was… we would easily win.

The special is filmed at the characters’ homes and will document Leslie Knope’s concerted efforts to keep her friends close while social distancing, according to Deadline.

The hit show about the parks department of Pawnee, Indiana ended five years ago after seven seasons.
