Another day, another unicorn sighting.

Less than two weeks after Bill Murray livened up the second-to-last episode of Parks and Recreation by playing a dead dude, EW has learned that the elusive movie star has now filmed a guest-starring role on the TBS summer comedy Angie Tribeca, starring Rashida Jones.

The police procedural satire, which centers on a group of quirky LAPD detectives, will feature Murray in one episode as Vic Deakins, an amiable grocery store clerk who flirts with Angie (Jones) while on the job and passes her his phone number. 

Murray—who also sang a tribute to Jaws on Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary special—has a few connections to the Tribeca team: Jones was one of the Parks and Recreation vets who helped woo the actor to play the long-referenced-but-never-before-seen Mayor Gunderson on the NBC comedy, according to Parks executive producer Michael Schur. Murray also appeared in a scene of Get Smart opposite Steve Carell, who’s a co-creator and executive producer of Angie Tribeca.

The guest roster on Angie Tribeca also will include another former Parks cast member, Adam Scott, as well as Amy Smart and David Koechner.
