BBC Four have acquired the UK rights to air NBC's Parks and Recreation. The deal that BBC struck with NBC Universal is for the first 2 seasons of Parks and Recreation, which is currently in its 5th season in the US on NBC.

Picking-up the first 2 seasons doesn't come as much of a surprise as the 1st season only consists of 6 episodes. While season 2 is a full blown 24 episodes. If Parks and Rec does well on BBC Four, they will acquire the rights to the rest of the seasons.
