In 2009, Morales joined the cast of the USA Network television series White Collar for its first season, playing the role of Lauren Cruz, a junior FBI agent. After departing from White Collar, she found a regular spot on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation starting in May 2010, portraying Lucy, the girlfriend of Aziz Ansari’s character Tom Haverford and a bartender at The Snakehole Lounge. Morales also appeared in Oliver Stone’s 2010 film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, a sequel to his 1987 classic. Additionally, she was cast as Chelsea Handler’s best friend in Are You There, Chelsea?, although she left the show due to creative changes. Her talent further shone through in Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama, The Newsroom, where she guest-starred as Kaylee, the girlfriend of Dev Patel’s character, Neal. In 2013, Morales became part of the cast of Trophy Wife as Meg, Kate’s best friend.  She joined the Fox series The Grinder in 2015 and made appearances in some episodes of the NBC series Powerless in 2017. Morales’s versatility was evident as she took on the role of Detective Anne Garcia in the Netflix horror comedy series Santa Clarita Diet in the same year.

Continuing her journey, Morales appeared in the NBC multi-camera sitcom Abby’s, created by Josh Malmuth and executive produced by Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur. Premiering on March 28, 2019, Abby’s marked Morales’s third series for the network. Later in 2019, she was cast as Michelle in the second season of the Netflix black comedy series Dead to Me. In a testament to her growing acclaim, Morales landed the role of Kate Danton in the third season of The Morning Show, set to air in 2023. Natalie Morales

Directing

Morales directed the 2021 teenage comedy “Plan B,” starring Victoria Morales and Kohu Varma. The story revolves around two adolescents seeking a Plan B pill after a regrettable initial sexual encounter. NPR’s Linda Holmes praised Morales’ direction, applauding the cast and creators for crafting a cleverly balanced comedic masterpiece infused with horror and despair, featuring unexpected twists that, while somewhat structurally conventional, remain consistently surprising throughout. 

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, Morales co-wrote and directed a drama film titled “Language Lessons.” The film stars Morales and writer-director Mark Duplass as a Spanish teacher (Morales) who engages with her student (Duplass) via Zoom. Morales’ writing received acclaim from IndieWire critic Katie Erbland for creating an intimate ‘zoom film.’ Premiering at the 71st edition of the Berlin International Film Festival in March of that year, it was later released in September 2021.
