THE MINDY PROJECT: Shonda Rhimes to appear


In this week’s crazy (but very cool!) piece of casting news…

As reported by TVLine late last night, Shonda Rhimes – the creator of the Shondaland TV empire over at ABC (with such hits as Grey’s AnatomyScandal, Private Practice and the upcoming How to Get Away with Murder) – is making her acting debut on The Mindy Project playing herself in an episode this fall! Further details are being kept under wraps at the moment.

Rhimes has admitted to being a big fan of both Fox’s comedy and its creator and star Mindy Kaling on numerous occasions, and understandably, her excitement about this news is palpable:

Rhimes will shoot her appearance on the show in September, and the episode will air later this fall.

Are you excited to see Shonda on TV this fall, despite how crazy this might sound initially?


The Mindy Project will return on September 16 at 9:30/8:30c on Fox.

… is a young graduate student that has been way too passionate about television ever since she was little. While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.
You can usually find her on Twitter, Tumblr, and at cassidy at
