EMMY NOMINEE AMY POEHLER TO GUEST-STAR IN FIRST TWO EPISODES OF NBC'S NEW 'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: WEEKEND UPDATE THURSDAY' ON SEPTEMBER 17 AND 24

Episodes Will Lead into Season Premiere of Poehler's Returning Comedy "Parks and Recreation"

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - NBC announced that two-time Emmy Award nominee Amy Poehler - star of NBC's returning comedy "Parks and Recreation" - will guest-star on the first two editions of the new fall series "Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update Thursday" for its premiere on Thursday, September 17 (8-8:30 p.m. ET) as well as on Thursday, September 24 (8-8:30 p.m. ET).

Poehler - who earlier this month scored her second consecutive Emmy nomination for her performance on "Saturday Night Live" - will reunite with "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Meyers behind the anchor desk that they shared on "SNL." The second-season debut of Poehler's "Parks and Recreation" also will follow that night from 8:30-9 p.m. (ET).

NBC will feature six new episodes of "Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update Thursday" skewering today's top stories in live half-hour primetime shows, anchored by the show's signature "Weekend Update" - and the first three will air to start the new fall season. Multiple Emmy winner Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live") is the executive producer.

In "Parks and Recreation," Poehler stars as Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. The mockumentary series is from Emmy-winning executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur (NBC's "The Office," "Saturday Night Live").

"Saturday Night Live" is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins and Marci Klein are producers. Ken Aymong is supervising producer. Seth Meyers is head writer. Don Roy King directs.
