Shonda Rhimes is showing no signs of slowing down her television domination. After juggling three different series on ABC's fall lineup, the superstar showrunner is now set to make her acting debut with a mysterious cameo on "The Mindy Project."
TVLine reports that Rhimes will play herself on the Fox comedy, though just how she factors into the episode has not been revealed. Rhimes, who is a huge fan of both "Mindy" and its star, Mindy Kaling, took to Twitter Thursday to express her excitement over the gig, using the hashtag, "#dreamsDOcometrue."
Kaling, in turn, used the social network to welcome Rhimes into the "Mindy" fold.
TVLine's report adds that Rhimes will shoot her cameo sometime in early September, with her episode slated to air later this fall. Will the showrunner pull an Olivia Pope and step in to handle a crisis at Schulman & Associates? We can't wait to find out.
The third season of "The Mindy Project" premieres on Fox on September 16.
