shonda rhimes the mindy project 'The Mindy Project' Season 3: Shonda Rhimes to guest starIs there anything Shonda Rhimes cannot do? The influential producer and showrunner is set to make her acting debut in an episode of “The Mindy Project” Season 3, TVLine reports.

Little is known about Rhimes’ appearance on the FOX comedy. However, TVLine reports she won’t have to get into character, since she will be playing herself, which makes us curious how Mindy will end up crossing paths with the woman who has a very busy fall coming up.

Rhimes created shows, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” are both coming back in the fall and they will be joined by freshman series “How to Get Away With Murder,” for which Rhimes serves as an executive producer.

“The Mindy Project’s” third season kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 16.
