Louis C.K. heading to ‘Parks’

Comedian lands multi-episode arc on NBC show

Comedian Louis C.K. is joining the cast of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” for a multi-episode arc.

The stand-up will portray a Pawnee police officer and potential love interest for the character played by star Amy Poehler.

Louis will first appear in the second episode of the “Parks” season and appear in several segments thereafter.

Role reps the comedian’s first series gig since his HBO sitcom, “Lucky Louie,” which he created for the paycabler. He just received an Emmy nomination for outstanding writing in the variety/music/comedy special category, for the Showtime special “Louis C.K.: Chewed Up.”

Louis recently taped his third stand-up special, “Louis C.K.: Hilarious,” and will appear in the new Ricky Gervais feature, “The Invention of Lying,” which will be released in September.
