MIAMI, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Leslie Knope must be in feminist heaven.

NBC announced Thursday that first lady Michelle Obama will make a cameo appearance on the season finale of Parks and Recreation, set to air in April.

“Mrs. Obama’s scene in the episode titled ‘Moving Up’ was filmed in late February in Miami where she celebrated investments in healthier out-of-school programs as part of her ‘Let’s Move’ initiative dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity,” a press release detailed.

Obama joins a parade of big political names to make appearances on the political comedy. Last season, the likes of Vice President Joe Biden, Arizona Sen. John McCain, California Sen. Barbara Boxer, and former Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe all popped up on the show.
