Parks and Recreation: We need some happy news, and who better than the gang from Pawnee to spread some old-fashioned joy? EW nabbed a two minutes and change trailer for the show’s upcoming fifth season, where we learn that Andy should have paid more attention in history class, Ben and April go on a road trip, and old people in Pawnee are contracting chlamydia. Unfortunately, Champion the three-legged dog does not make a cameo. [EW]

Embrace: Now this is news we can totally (don’t hate me) embrace: The CW folks are developing a “Buffy-like” supernatural drama based on the book Embrace, by Jessica Shirvington. This time around, our heroine is Violet Eden, a twenty-something who finds out that she’s half-angel and the key to a centuries-old war between fallen angels and their earthly protectors. Cool! Joss Whedon isn’t busy, right? [The Hollywood Reporter]
