Even though she's spearheading three series this fall, uber-producer Shonda Rhimes still has a little extra time… with which to step in front of the camera for The Mindy Project! And her episode airs tonight, October 14, at 9:30 p.m. ET on FOX.

As TVLine reported in August, the 44-year-old is gracing the FOX comedy's third season with her divine presence. Never mind the fact that she has Grey's AnatomyScandal, and How to Get Away With Murder to churn out every Thursday night.

Better yet, Shonda Rhimes is playing Shonda Rhimes. And that makes total sense — given on-screen Mindy's affinity for all things romantic and Hollywood, she's gotta be a Grey's fan.

Shonda isn't the first Shondaland resident to appear on the show — Private Practice alum Tim Daly played Mindy's cop boyfriend last season.

This is, however, Shonda's first time acting on-screen — at least, so says her IMDb resume.

"Shh. Nobody tell @mindykaling that I can neither act nor appear lifelike on camera," Shonda tweeted on August 28. "NO ONE STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING! #dreamsDOcometrue."

Nah, we don't buy it. She can do anything, and we can't wait to see her with Mindy when her episode airs this fall!
