A famous White House resident will be popping up on Parks and Recreation.

NBC announced today that First Lady Michelle Obama will make a cameo appearance on the season finale of the NBC comedy. Obama filmed her scene this week while in Miami as part of her “Let’s Move” initiative, which tackles the issue of childhood obesity. The one-hour episode,  titled “Moving Up,” airs April 24.

Obama is the latest political figure to guest-star on the local government comedy. Vice President Joe Biden appeared in a season 5 episode opposite Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), while Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe also played themselves in other episodes last season.
