Comedian and co-executive producer of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” Harris Wittels, was found dead Thursday at his Los Angeles home, authorities said. He was 30.

Wittels’ body was discovered by his assistant at 12 p.m. in the 2200 block of North Hobart Boulevard, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Rosario Herrera.

Police suspect Wittels died from a drug overdose, but the cause of death will be determined by the county coroner’s office.

On “Parks and Rec,” whose seventh and final season concludes Feb. 24, Wittels also served as a writer and occasionally appeared as an animal control staffer.
