Five cult American comedies you need to know about
The joke's on US in these unmissable TV shows

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), a female, small-town American David Brent, gets ideas above her station while working in local government.
Season one couldn’t be any more indebted to ‘The Office’ if it did a silly dance before spunking its severance pay on a novelty pop record. But the simultaneously grating and sweet Knope is an interesting character and the show hits its stride as the scenario develops.
Where and when?
Season one starts Wednesday March 6, 10pm, BBC4.
