Leslie Knope, meet your new rival: Kristen Bell is heading to Pawnee to cause some trouble for Amy Poehler's character in an upcoming episode of "Parks and Recreation."

The "Veronica Mars"/"House of Lies" actress will guest star in a Season 6 episode of NBC's comedy as Ingrid, a snooty City Councilwoman from neighboring town Eagleton, EW reports.

"She's Leslie's equivalent, but richer and better dressed," exec producer Mike Schur revealed. The two powerful women will meet at the annual Pawnee-Eagleton high school basketball game. 

The episode -- which reunites Bell with former "Party Down" co-star Adam Scott and will be shot once she finishes shooting the "Veronica Mars" movie -- is slated to air in early October.

The "Parks and Rec" Season 6 one-hour premiere airs on Sept. 26.
