Another reason to get excited for season three of The Mindy Project. Shonda Rhimes, this fall’s queen of Thursday night television, is adding a new gig to her impressive résumé.
If you’re wondering where you know her name from, just check your DVR. She is the executive producer of ABC’s hit shows Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and premiering this fall, How to Get Away with Murder (starring Academy Award nominee Viola Davis).
Mindy Kaling, creator of The Mindy Project, welcomed Rhimes to the show on Twitter.
Rhimes is set to appear as herself in one episode, but specific details about her cameo are under wraps. However, as a fan of the show, she is very excited to guest star. She tweeted:
Shh. Nobody tell
@mindykaling that I can neither act nor appear lifelike on camera. NO ONE STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING! #dreamsDOcometrue
Watch the third season premiere of The Mindy Project on FOX, September 16th at 9:30 P.M.

This might be the best news I’ve heard all week. I’m a huge fan of anything Shonda Rhimes creates and Mindy Project is one of my favorite shows on right now, so this is just spectacular.
Are you excited to see Rhimes on Mindy’s show? What kind of role do you think she will have?
