Lucy Lawless, Known for 'Xena' and 'Spartacus,' Set for NBC Sitcom Role EW

Lucy Lawless, known for her roles in "Xena: Warrior Princess" and "Spartacus," will guest star as a love interest for Ron Swanson, played by Nick Offerman, on NBC’s “Parks & Recreation,” EW.com's Inside TV reports.

Lawless will appear in at least two episodes, playing a single mother who brings a problem to the Parks Department, the story notes. Her first episode will air Oct. 4.

Earlier this summer, Offerman said he wanted his character to see positive development on the relationship front. "One thing Ron’s never succeeded at is maintaining a happy romantic relationship for any length of time. Maybe we’ll get to explore that a little bit," Offerman said.
