If you’ve been paging Dr. Lexie Grey then you’ve been answered with silence since Chyler Leigh departed her Grey’s Anatomy gig, taking her character, Meredith’s half-sister, along with her. We can now report, however that the actress has scored her first major TV role since leaving the ABC medical drama. Her new gig is one of the lead parts in NBC’s new comedy pilot called Holding Patterns. We’ve got the details.
Holding Patterns comes from The Office scribe Justin Spitzer, but the material sounds more dramatic than slapstick. The project is a multi-cam ensemble featuring a group of friends whose lives are forever changed when they survive a plane crash. You’ve got to wonder at the coincidence here because Dr. Lexie Grey was killed in a similar catastrophe.
Leigh will play Leah, the quintessential slacker. She forgets things and is always running late. »
