— What do actor Rob Lowe, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have in common?

All of them will appear in the winter premiere  of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” shot in the Indianapolis area last December and airing Thursday night, Jan. 17.

Lowe, a co-star of the hit comedy about the fictional Indiana town of Pawnee, traveled with the show’s male cast members to Indiana to shoot an episode that includes some iconic landmarks in the state’s capital city and Boone County.
