Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are checking into NBC's The Night Shift. The two will appear in the May 4 episode of the medical drama as part of  a collaboration between the series and the Joining Forces initiative.

In the Monday, May 4 episode of the series, the show will "illustrate the healing, resilience and sense of purpose that veterans, such as San Antonio Memorial's own TC Callahan (played by Eoin Macken), have found when they get the support they need," NBC said in a release. A public service announcement featuring Obama, Dr. Biden and the stars of The Night Shift—Macken, Jill Flint and Robert Bailey Jr.—will appear on

This isn't the first scripted TV appearance for either of the political figures. Both Obama and Dr. Biden have appeared on NBC's Parks and Recreation. The first lady has also appeared on numerous other scripted shows including Nashville, iCarly and Jessie. Dr. Biden has appeared on Army Wives.

The Night Shift airs Mondays, 10 p.m. on NBC.
