Most Pretty Little Liars fans know that executive producer/showrunner Marlene King is the main mastermind behind the addictive teen drama. Yes, everyone on the cast and crew does their part to make PLL special, but Marlene is the woman who brings all the parts together and creates a cohesive visions for the show.

Now she's turning her talents to a new challenge: directing!

As we previously reported, Marlene will be directing her first episode ever in the Season 3 winter season, with Season 3, Episode 16: "Misery Loves Company," and she started today (August 15)!

"Gotta get some rest," Marlene tweeted last night. "Tomorrow is my first day directing."

Marlene obviously has an excellent way with words. We can't wait to see what kind of magic she works from behind the camera, too.

Catch an all-new episode of PLL on Tuesday, August 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
