LAist: You've worked as a writer and co-producer on NBC's "Parks and Recreation". Any favorite stories from your work on the show?
Harris Wittels: This is very tangentially related to "Parks and Rec", but it’s worth mentioning. Every year, the Friday before we take our week-long Thanksgiving break, the caterers give the cast and crew a feast of sorts. It is always awesome. And this year they put out this dessert that was the single best food I have ever tasted. They were essentially just these little rice krispie treat balls, but instead of Rice Krispies—are you ready??—it was CORN FLAKES! FUCKING CORN FLAKES. It made all the difference in the world. Everyone from Amy [Poehler] to Rashida [Jones] to myself and the other writers were really freaking out about them. They were gooey but they had a perfect crunch element as well. Just superb. Also, Joe Biden [who appeared on the show airing the week of the general election] is cool.
