Michelle Obama is ready for her close-up on “NCIS.”

CBS announced on Thursday that the first lady will make a guest appearance on the May 3 edition of its long-running drama, E! Online reports. The episode has been timed to air in conjunction with “Joining Forces,” a nationwide initiative created in 2011 by Obama and Jill Biden, wife of the vice president, to support members of the armed services, veterans and their families.

Scenes were filmed at the White House, where Obama will be seen welcoming special agent Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the wife of a Marine for a “Joining Forces” roundtable with military spouses. The show also used actual military spouses to work as extras in the episode.

This is not the first time Obama has had a TV role. She has previously appeared on “Project Runway: Junior,” “Parks & Recreation,” “Nashville” and Disney Channel’s “Jessie.”
