WASHINGTON (AP) — The cast of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" will cast Michelle Obama on the show's season finale.
The first lady's office said the first lady will appear on the show's season finale on April 24. The show's Twitter account said it's "time to get real about Pawnee's obesity." It's a reference to Pawnee, Ind., the fictional town where the show takes place, as well as where the first lady's campaign against child obesity was held.
The show's star, Amy Poehler, lent the campaign a hand earlier this week when she appeared at a "Let's Move" event in Miami, where Mrs. Obama joked that she and Poehler are best friends.
Mrs. Obama won't be the first White House figure to appear on the show. Vice President Joe Biden made a cameo on the show in 2012.
