More Grey’s Part DeuxMarch 29, 2007 at 2:15 pm | Posted in Grey's Anatomy, TV News | Leave a comment
Shonda Rhimes hates spoilers, but someone at ABC doesn’t, because they ran and told the LA Times all about the new Grey’s Anatomy spinoff. Nothing too surprising, but here it is:
Following her recent disastrous romantic misfortunes, Addison (Kate Walsh) travels to Santa Monica to seek advice from her old medical school pals, Naomi (Merrin Dungey) and Jackson (Taye Diggs) whom she believes have it all: a beautiful teenage daughter, a great marriage and a highly successful health cooperative.
Addison quickly learns that Jackson, also a successful TV health guru, has divorced Naomi. During the visit, Addison also meets the rest of the gang at the cooperative: a widowed alternative medicine doctor, a self-doubting therapist, and a male gynecologist who knows little about women, and realizes she is on familiar ground.
Addison concludes that the personal lives of the people around her may be a mess, but professionally they stand out. (Sounds like those crazy interns, right?) So she decides to leave Seattle Grace behind and join the Oceanside Wellness Group team.
Predictions: The widowed alternative medicine doctor has got to be Tim Daly. (Alternative medicine? Ew.) The self-doubting therapist has Amy Brenneman written all over it. And the male gynecologist … Paul Adelstein? Interesting choice. This still doesn’t tell us who Chris Lowell and Sean Faris will play. I still say they look too young to be doctors!
I also don’t like this whole “health cooperative” nonsense. It sounds like the set will be some cheesy oceanfront property like the Melrose Place beach house. What’s wrong with another hospital? Oh, Shonda. First Izzie sleeps with George, now this. Don’t ruin this show, too …
Updated: Sean Faris, hilariously, will be playing the “sexed-up receptionist.”
