Harris Wittels, co-executive producer of NBC's "Parks and Recreation," was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Thursday. TMZ was first to report the news, which was confirmed to The Huffington Post by a spokesperson for Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

In a statement to The Huffington Post, a Los Angeles Police Department representative said the 30-year-old was found by his assistant at around 12 p.m. PT on Thursday. The cause of death is not yet determined, and will be decided by coroner.

In addition to "Parks and Recreation," which ends its run next week, Wittels also worked on series such as "Eastbound And Down," and "The Sarah Silverman Program." He is also credited with coining the term "humblebrag," a type of boast disguised in modesty. He published a book in 2012, "Humblebrag: The Art Of False Modesty," based on his Twitter account.
