It's official, Oprah Winfrey's much reported guest stint on NBC's "30 Rock" will come to fruition as the network has confirmed on Thursday, September 18 that she will make a guest starring role on an upcoming episode. She even has filmed her scenes for the comedy series last Saturday, September 13 at the Silvercup Studios in Queens, N.Y.

Earlier this month, report emerged that Oprah has been in final negotiation to make a guest starring role on "30 Rock". She was claimed to be close to signing a deal to appear on the hit TV series and will be billed to play herself in scenes opposite the series' regular, actress Tina Fey.

Also, I would like to announce that we are officially best friends."

Teri Weinberg, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment, added "Oprah Winfrey's presence on '30 Rock' makes this episode a television event. She is a true legend in her own time, and in this comedy's tradition, it provides the perfect showcase for stars of her renowned status. We are all thrilled."

The upcoming episode of "30 Rock" which features Oprah's guest stint will be screened on November 6 in the U.S. at 9:30 ET/PT.
