Interview: Nick Offerman on writing a ‘Parks and Recreation’ script

At NBC’s press tour party last night, I ran into Nick Offerman from “Parks and Recreation,” who mentioned that he had written an upcoming episode for the show (the 18th out of 22 for the season). Given that Offerman, like Ron Effing Swanson, seems to be superhumanly competent at everything else, the idea of him writing a script for the show intrigued me.

What you’ll be eating in 2012 (and how much you’ll pay for it)

Yes, cake pops will almost certainly be huge in 2012. Montreal celebrity chef Chuck Hughes will continue his climb to television superstardom, water will remain the most confusing item on restaurant menus and curly parsley might at long last get the respect it deserves (which is to say: none).

“Regardless of social media, journalists are still behind large amounts of information the public is exposed to every day. A big part of their job is to filter and package information sourced from the community around them. We’d like to make that interaction between journalists and their ecosystem more pleasant for everyone involved and the Press Pass directory is our first step in that direction.”

David, who’s worked in Dubai, Stockholm and New York, has conceptualized and built several online payment, social networking, and news/media products – attracting hundreds of thousands to a few million users.

David is a prolific news reader, and is active on both Quora and Twitter (@daveying99). Email him at david@presspass.me

“Journalism is penetrating into areas it’s never been before, and has started to invite others to participate in the story-telling process. Through PressPass, I’m hoping that everyone who has a newsworthy story will be able to not only find the right reporters to get their word out, but build trustworthy relationships with them.”

Valencio has worked at some of the top interactive advertising agencies – McCann (Toronto), Organic Inc (Toronto), North55 (Dubai) and TBWA (Dubai), along with some of the larger global and local brands – General Motors, Nissan, Pfizer, Bank of America, Airmiles, Visa, MAF, Eurosport Arabia & Emirates Airlines.

He also created TheSociallyConsciousBlog.org & SociallyConsciousArabia.com – websites aimed at raising awareness for causes & initiatives doing exceptional jobs using the web/social media to make a positive impact on society.

How it Works

Find your reporter

PressPass helps you quickly identify the journalists who are relevant to your story. All our listed journalists are organized by the outlets they work for, the beats they cover, and geographical regions they’re from.

Find your reporter

Understand the reporter’s profile

Each reporter’s profile contains what they’re sharing online, where they rank in comparison to their peers, the topics they care about and who’s getting their attention.

This information helps you to get a more in-depth understanding of the reporter, ensuring that you’re pitching your content to the right people. It also helps journalists receive leads on stories they’d be interested in.
