I’m told Rhimes, a self-proclaimed super-fan of both The Mindy Project and its star Mindy Kaling, will play herself on the show. Specifics about her storyline are being kept under wraps.
Shh. Nobody tell @mindykaling that I can neither act nor appear lifelike on camera. NO ONE STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING! #dreamsDOcometrue

Rhimes’ episode is slated to shoot in early September and air later this fall.
The Mindy Project kicks off its third season on Sept. 16.
