Michelle Obama is in Los Angeles Monday to tape an episode of the popular Nickelodeon show iCarly.

The First Lady will play herself in the episode in which the lead character, Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove), is sad because her Air Force colonel father is not at home on her birthday, Nickelodeon president Cyma Zarghami told the AP. Michelle will tell Carly how she is serving her country through her father.

“Regardless of your political affinity,” Zarghami said, “everybody cares about these families, so it just feels right."

Michelle said her daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9 are big fans of the show.

Michelle’s cameo is slated to air sometime next year, according to the network.

It’s not the first time a First Lady has made a cameo in a sitcom. (Think Nancy Reagan appearing on Diff’rent Strokes’ “Just Say No” episode in 1983).
