Volkswagen Partners with “Parks and Recreation” to Send April (Aubrey Plaza) and Andy (Chris Pratt) on a Cross-Country Road Trip
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – November 3, 2011 – Volkswagen of America, Inc., has partnered with NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” to bring fans the show’s first web series. On Thursday, November 3 the five-episode, online-only series will feature Andy (Chris Pratt) and April (Aubrey Plaza) embarking on a road trip across America.
Viewers tuning in to the November 3 episode of “Parks and Recreation” on NBC will see Andy sharing his bucket list with April, inspiring the couple to take a road trip out west. Volkswagen will help bridge the on-air story to the online story as the two “borrow” April’s dad’s Passat and begin their adventure.
The web series picks up where the show leaves off, following the happy couple on their 60-hour journey across America. Watch as they battle spiders, scope out real estate opportunities, and visit the famous “Four Corners” (or, what Andy thinks is the Four Corners).
In addition to the web series, <a title="http://nbc.com/
