It's all about who you know!

Oprah Winfrey is one of the few people in the world who can say she has her very own TV network, and that unique distinction sure does come with a lot of perks.

And one of those said perks may just be the ability to cast yourself in your own shows!

The media mogul was already set to Executive Produce OWN's upcoming megachurch drama Greenleaf, but now it looks like Oprah is going to get an acting credit on the series as well.

The Lionsgate program stars Keith David and Lynn Whitfield as James and Lady Mae Greenleaf, with Merle Dandridge, Desiree Ross, Lamman Rucker, Kim Hawthorne, Deborah Joy Winans, Tye White, and Oprah herself as the rest of the powerful family.

We don't know too much more about the pilot, but you can expect to catch Greenleaf early 2016 on OWN.

Congrats on the casting news, Oprah!
