Both Michelle Obama and star Amy Poehler earlier appeared at obesity forum

Full of grace, poise and charm, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to appear on cult television comedy "Parks and Recreation." The White House has confirmed Mrs. Obama will guest star in the NBC show's season six finale.

It won't be the first time Ms. Obama and Poehler have met. Both appeared at Mrs. Obama's campaign last month when she appeared at a Let's Move event in Miami.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The First Lady's cameo will appear in an episode titled "Moving Up." The program will center on her campaign against child obesity.

"Time to get real about Pawnee's obesity. @FLOTUS is coming to town for our #ParksandRec season finale Thursday, April 24!," the show tweeted. FLOTUS is an acronym for First Lady of the United States. Pawnee, Indiana is the fictional town where the show takes place, which is home to public servant Leslie Knope, played by the show's star, Amy Poehler.

It won't be the first time Ms. Obama and Poehler have met. Both appeared at Mrs. Obama's campaign last month when she appeared at a Let's Move event in Miami.

Obama is not the first U.S. politician to appear on the show. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden made a cameo on the show in 2012. Three further senators, including presidential runner John McCain, have also guest starred in "Parks and Recreation," which is currently in its sixth season.

Executive producer Michael Schur says he's still hoping to persuade Hillary Clinton to make an appearance on the show.

"I always imagined the perfect ending to the series - and I hope it's not for a while - would be a casual piece of B-roll where Leslie is walking through a building in Washington, DC, and passes Hillary Clinton, and Hillary Clinton says, 'Leslie.' Leslie says, 'Secretary Clinton,' and keeps walking."

"That might still be five seasons away, but that's the trajectory I would like Leslie to enjoy."

Regular stars Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are due to leave the series at the end of season six.
