[BRIGHTCOVE "20902901" "" "peoplenow"] Following a possible overdose, Harris Wittels was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Thursday night, reports Entertainment Weekly. He was 30.

At the Unite4:Humanity event in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler paid homage to Wittels during her acceptance of the unity award: "So, here's my daily life – today, I lost a friend. I lost a dear, young man in my life who was struggling with addiction and died. Just a few hours before we came," she said.

"Jane [Aronson] and I sat and talked about it. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day and at the end of the day when things happen in our lives, we turn to people that we love, and we look to our family and our community for support, and we lean on people in a hope that they will ease our pain," Poehler finished.
