Rachel Dratch Set for Final Season of NBC's PARKS AND RECREATION

EW reports that SNL veteran, comedian and stage actress Rachel Dratch is on board for the final season of NBC's PARKS AND RECREATION.

Dratch will play nanny to Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott)'s triplets.

The seventh and final season of the comedy will jump ahead three years. It is set to premiere on NBC in 2015.

Aside from Saturday Night Live, Dratch's TV credits include The Awesomes, The Neighbors, The Middle, Fish Hooks, Suburgatory, 30 Rock and more. She often appears off-Broadway in Celebrity Autobiography.

About PARKS AND RECREATION: From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels ("The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur ("The Office," NBC's "Saturday Night Live"), "Parks and Recreation" is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Golden Globe winner Amy Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Baby Mama"), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Ind., and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun.

In the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, Leslie's office mates include Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari, "Human Giant," "Scrubs"), a fashion-obsessed wannabe player whose greatest dream is to own his own nightclub. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, "Children's Hospital," sporting one of the most impressive moustaches on TV), hates the very government he works for. Leslie is supported by Ben Wyatt, her husband and former campaign manager (Adam Scott, "Friends with Kids," "Party Down"); former shoeshine boy extraordinaire, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt, "Zero Dark Thirty," "Moneyball"); and Andy's wife, April, the disinterested intern now the Director of Animal Control (Aubrey Plaza, "Funny People"). Rounding out the Parks and Recreation staff are the fun-loving Donna Meagle (Retta, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and the department's punching bag, Jerry Gergich (Jim O'Heir, "Castle").

"Parks and Recreation" is currently in its sixth season and since its premiere in 2009, the critically-acclaimed series has been included on dozens of television critics' Top 10 lists and was named "TV's Smartest Comedy" in Entertainment Weekly's 2011 cover story. "Parks and Recreation" is the recipient of a Peabody Award for excellence in television programming, an AFI honor as one of the Top 10 Television Shows of the Year, Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, and four consecutive Emmys nominations as well as a Golden Globe Award for Amy Poehler's individual performance. Additional accolades include Writers Guild Award and Producers Guild Award nominations, 2010 GLAAD Award for Outstanding Individual Episode, 2013 Television Critics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy and TCA nominations for Program of the Year and Individual Achievement in Comedy for Poehler and co-star Nick Offerman, which Offerman won, as well as NAACP Image Award and Imagen Award nominations.
