“She’s Leslie’s equivalent, but richer and better dressed,” exec producer Mike Schur tells the site.

Bell, whose stint on the show will reunite her with former Party Down co-star Adam Scott, will shoot the ep after she finishes work on the Veronica Mars feature film.

Parks kicks off its sixth season on Sept. 26. Bell’s episode is slated to air in October.

    • Mr. Rook! Of course! This will be their third time together. I hope they include some Party Down references!

  • Awesome! I could totally see her as an Eagletonian.

    • Yeah as soon as I saw the Headline, I was like, “she’s going to be from Eagleton,” she’s just that perfect.

  • Great news! I love Kristen Bell and I started watching Parks this year and It’s an awesome tv show.

  • Apparently I remain the only person on the Internet who doesn’t understand why so many people are so enamored with Kristen Bell. She is to me what Li’l Sebastian is to Ben Wyatt. Maybe this will be the role that convinces me she’s as awesome as everyone says.

    • Lately, I agree with you. But she was awesome on Veronica Mars. I think she has a lot of diehard fans from that show… Like me!!!

    • If by any chance you haven’t come across it yet, watch her interview with Ellen when she talks about sloths. I defy you to not love her after that!

  • Oh I sure hope “Veronica” has a scene with “Burt Macklin”

  • Didn’t they already have a character like this with Parker Posey?

    Comment by Anne – July 11, 2013 03:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Parker Posey played Leslie’s ex-best friend who took a job at the Eagleton Parks Department when Leslie turned it down. My guess is that Kristen’s character wont have any back story with Leslie aside from politics.

  • Great news. I hope she’ll get to share scenes with Adam Scott in the episode.

    • If we know the P&R writers as well as we do, you know they will literally do this for the fans and fingers crossed give Kristen Bell’s character more than just 1 episode.

  • I adore Kristen, she will do a great job on the Best Show on TV!

  • Please oh please have her interact with Jean-Ralphio at some point in the ep!

  • And makes total sense given the Ken Marino/Ryan Hansen connection too, from Veronica Mars and Party Down!
