Diggs goes for 'Grey' spin

22 February 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Taye Diggs has been tapped to star opposite Kate Walsh in ABC's potential spinoff from hit medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

Additionally, Grey producer ABC TV Studio has extended for two more years its overall deal with O'Taye Prods., Diggs' production company with his longtime manager, Abe Hoch.

The potential spinoff will test the waters as a back-door pilot, an expanded two-hour episode of Grey slated to air in May. It will center on neonatal surgeon Addison Shepherd (Walsh), a character that has enjoyed a strong following from fans since she was introduced at the end of the hot surgical drama's first season.

It is understood that the back-door pilot episode will feature Shepherd on the verge of leaving Seattle Grace, a scenario that will be triggered if ABC goes with the spinoff for next season. There were no details on the character Diggs will play.

Grey creator/executive producer Shonda Rhimes is writing the episode and is expected to shepherd the potential series. »
