Her acting debut!

When The Mindy Project first came out a while back I remember watching the pilot episode, and thinking it looked good. But I didn’t stick with it, and now I must punish myself with a binge watch.

This fall Shonda Rhimes is bringing us Shondaland Thursdays (AKA TGIT) with Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder running back-to-back on ABC. And even with all that going on, she’s still making time to try out new things. The writer/director/creator/my hero will make her acting debut on Mindy Kaling‘s The Mindy Project.

First Look: Meet The Cast Of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood Vs. Water’

Premiering September 24
Meet the Cast

We are just about a month away from the premiere of a new season of Survivor on CBS and today we get to meet the cast of 18 people who will compete on the new season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. As you may know, Survivor did a Blood vs. Water season before (pitting teams of loved ones against one another in the game) and because that season was so successful, they’re doing it again. As I understand it, there were supposed to be two same-sex couples in the mix this time but a pair of women had to pull out of the show due to a medical emergency (the pair of same-sex men are in the game). Click the embed above to meet the 9 teams of players this season and get ready, Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water will premiere on CBS on September 24.
