Working with the National Humanities Alliance, Miranda, 37, held meetings with everyone from New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Congressman Adriano Espaillat and California Representative Maxine Waters to Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy and Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski — sharing selfies with them on his social media accounts.
“Here with the real life Leslie Knope,” he wrote of Gillibrand, while referencing Amy Poehler’s character from NBC’s acclaimed comedy Parks and Recreation. (He thenproved he’s a fan of the sitcom by adding the hashtag #TreatYoSelf2017.)
A shot with Leahy and Murkowski had Miranda dreaming up a new show for the three of them. “Miranda, Leahy, Murkowski…in a new political thriller this fall, only on USA,” he joked. “#CharactersWelcome.”
