Beverly Hills, Calif.(AP)_ The creator and executive producer of "Nip/Tuck" is thrilled that Joan Rivers is popping up on the show. Ryan Murphy says Rivers is the "all time" "true 'get' for him."

To have her appear in season two Murphy called Rivers' "manager and pitched him this idea that she wants everything taken away." Murphy says "she got the joke."

Looking ahead to season three of "Nip/Tuck," Murphy says Rivers' character will need upkeep on her face.

Other guest stars who are returning to "Nip/Tuck" in season three are Alec Baldwin, Famke Janssen, Jill Clayburgh and Vanessa Redgrave.

The new season starts September 20th on FX.
