As it fades to black after seven seasons tomorrow night, the cult NBC comedy Parks And Recreation will pay tribute to co-executive producer Harris Wittels, who died suddenly on Thursday at the age of 30. The hourlong Parks & Rec series finale will end with a We Love You, Harris message from the cast and crew of the show.
Writer-comedian Wittels had been on Parks And Rec since Season 1, working as a writer and occasional guest star playing Harris, the Animal Control guy. He started as co-producer, rising to co-executive producer. One of Wittels’ closest friends was Parks & Rec co star Aziz Ansari, who wrote an emotional tribute to him on Friday.
