Lexie lives! Sort of.

Chyler Leigh, whose character's death is still being mourning by Grey's Anatomy fans everywhere, has signed on for Holding Patterns, a multi-camera NBC comedy pilot.

According to Michael Ausiello of TV Line, Leigh will portray one of a group of friends who - irony alert! - survive a plane crash and find their lives altered as a result.

Leigh's Lexie, of course, died from a plane crash to close Grey's Anatomy Season 8.

The new sitcom still have to be ordered to series, of course, and will be produced by Rachel Kaplan (Do No Harm) and Peter Traugott (Samantha Who?). »
