NCIS: LA Season 7: Pamela Reed Lands 'Fun' Role — as Deeks' Mother

Marty Deeks and Leslie Knope share a mom…?

Parks and Rec alum Pamela Reed will guest-star on CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles this fall, in a role that promises to delight (and perhaps intrigue) viewers.

“In the second episode a new character is introduced, and the audience will be delighted,” showrunner Shane Brennan told TVLine on Friday, before the casting of Mrs. Deeks was announced at EW.com. “When this person appears, you’re going to go, ‘Oh my God, this is so much fun!'”

What’s more, it promises to shed some light on the mop-topped lawman. “It’s a very revealing moment for [Deeks],” Brennan added. “Definitely watch Episode 2!”

In addition to her recurring run as Marlene Knope, Reed’s TV credits include The United States of Tara, Jericho, The Home Court, Family Album and, yes, an episode of NCIS sire JAG (as Major General Willsey).

NCIS: LA Season 7 premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c.
